Default Adobe Premiere Pro & Handbrake Added to Our CPU Test Suite

I posted earlier this week about the introduction of SPEC's CPU2006 benchmark to our CPU test suite, and today, I'd like to talk a bit about two other entries: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and HandBrake 0.9.5. In the past, we used both TMPGEnc Xpress and ProShow Gold as our video creation / encoding benchmarks, but for a couple of different reasons, neither are ideal any longer.

With this CPU test suite upgrade, we wanted to make sure that we were catering to as many people as possible; enthusiasts, end-users, professionals and so forth. We also wanted to make sure that the tests we chose made sense in the real-world - that's to say that we don't want to use a benchmark that is just a benchmark and nothing more. There has to be a purpose behind it.

Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)

Good stuff I use handbrake as my x264 front end. Only thing I need it to do that it doesnt is take multiple sources to output as one file.

Try Staxrip, that has profiles for various encoding options and can auto-combine files, such as those from FRAPS.
