Preview: MSI P35 Neo Combo, Part one

We didn't bother with synthetic benchmarks, because they won't tell you anything
interesting, we concentrate on real world applications, especially multimedia encoding.

Gordian Knot/XVID 1.1.2:
For our Gordian Knot testing we took an PAL epsiode from "Babylon 5" with a length of 41 minutes, 57 seconds and 8 frames.
We tried to "emulate" the most common usage of Gordian Knot:
1st: We have a perfect master, so we only de-interlace the content and resize it, without any other manupulation, we marked this as "fast".
2nd: You get bad mastering on many DVDs, especially "old" stuff or when the studios are in a hurry for the release. In this case you like to improve the picture quality, which is done by filtering the content. You can choose from tons of filters for any purposes you can think of, but we only used the most common "undot", "FluxSmooth" and "MSharpen". Of course we also de-interlaced, filters were applied before any resizing took place (which is slower). We marked this as "slow".

If you need more info about filters, we recommend reading the doom9.org forum.

Due to the bug in the BIOS we needed to run our 3200MHz test with CL5-5-5-13-CR2T, which only overclocking friendy memory can provide, but shouldn't influence the results measurable.
