Asus Rampage IV Black Edition (X79) Motherboard Review

HandBrake is a fantastic free program that can be used to convert video files to many common formats for portable devices. HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multi-platform, multi-threaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.

We used the V0.9.9 version.

For our testing today we are converting a 4.4GB 720p MKV file (1h:58mins) to MP4 format, using HandBrake’s ‘Normal’ profile, for playback on High-Resolution devices. This is a common procedure for many people and will give a good indication of system power.

Handbrake

Handbrake encoding tasks seem to favour Asus’ Rampage IV Black Edition by a few seconds, though the percentage difference is little more than 1%. The addition performance is, again, likely to be related to the ROG board’s additional memory bandwidth.
