Review: How good are G33 graphics?

 

LameMT:

The same episode we encoded in the previous test was used for our MP3-testing. We don't recommend using MP3 for encoding, because AC3 can do the job better, but nearly 42 minutes gives us approximately the length of any given album.

A measurement in seconds, as seen on many sites, is useless, because the differences are too small. So we used the built-in play/CPU ratio, this means the CPU is encoding x-times faster than the track-length. Fast memory does not play an important role here. For your convenience we show you also the single-threaded benches, they will be produced with any other L.A.M.E. version, because only lameMT can do more than one thread and take advantage of a second dice.

We used these settings: lamemt --vbr-new -q 2 -V 2 -m j --strictly-enforce-ISO --resample 48

The difference is noticeable; Windows XP users have a slight advantage. Those who opt for a graphics card instead of integrated solutions will greatly benefit from it, as the performance is comparable to results scored by P35 Platinum motherboard, also from MSI.
