I am going to build a server for H.264 video encoding using x264
which can use up to 16 core and seems to make good use of CPU cache and so AMD Opteron 8 and 12 cores series looks proper candidate as processors for the server but I need to have real tests and there is an x264 benchmark
that list some results
but Opteron 8 or 12 cores are not in the list.
For those who have access to the required AMD 8 and 12 cores processors, could you please take the benchmark and publish the result, it is interesting to see how those processors perform in a tool optimized to make use of multiple cores which those processor have plenty of them.
More information is at x264 HD benchmark page
and latest version of the benchmark tool, as of this time, could be download here
Any benchmark is highly appreciated
