We used the DivX converter, a tool included in the DivX package, in order to measure the encoding performance using this codec. The DivX codec is, at least theorethically, capable of recognizing and using all available cores and the SSE4 instruction set.

We converted a Full HD, six-minute long .mov video file into a .avi file, using the “HD 1080p” output profile.

The results below are given in seconds, so the lower the better.

A10-6800K vs Core i3-5150

On DivX encoding, the Core i3-4150 was 25% faster than the A10-6800K, 134% faster than the A6-6400K, and 15% faster than the Pentium G3220.
