Our good friends at Cyberlink kindly supplied the software for our BluRay and conversion tests.
Cyberlink PowerDVD 11 is one of the finest solutions for the BluRay experience on Windows and we found this software to work perfectly with this chipset. We tested with the Blu-Ray Disc of Independence Day.
Both the A8-3850 and Intel i3-2105 performed well in this test, achieving similar levels of performance. On average, both systems were running below 10% CPU usage which leaves plenty of free CPU cycles for other tasks.
