Handbrake Conversion

Handbrake is a free and open-source video transcoding tool that can be used to convert video files between different codecs, formats and resolutions. We measured the average frame rate achieved for a task of converting a 6.27GB 4K video using the Normal Profile setting and MP4 container. The test stresses all CPU cores to 100% and shows an affinity for memory bandwidth.

CPU-related performance from Gigabyte’s Aorus Z270X-Gaming 7 is competitive against ASRock and ASUS alternatives. The Aorus board does fall a little short in Cinebench and Handbrake performance but the margin is small. This slight percentage shortfall is potentially attributed to the system resources being used in the background by Gigabyte’s OS software.
