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 new Bluray Disc of TRON LEGACY.
The additional power of the Core i7 helps lower the processing overhead, dropping to 7 percent and leaving plenty of free cycles for multitasking, if needed.
We then recorded the CPU demand over a specific set of time to get a ‘real world’ rolling scale of activity. The Core i7 processor is easily capable of delivering a fantastic High Definition media experience.
