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 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.

Athlon 5150 

On DivX encoding, the Athlon 5150 achieved the same performance level of the Celeron J1800, and was 12% faster than the A4-5000 and 98% faster than the Sempron 2650, but 35% slower than the Pentium J2900.
