AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Octa-Core Processor Review

Video Transcoding Speed + Radial Blur Speed

Video Transcoding Speed – HandBrake

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility. Video transcoding basically converts a video file from one resolution / format to another. As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive. In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X (Price Check) did very well in this test, transcoding the video 40 seconds (16%) faster than the next best processors – the Ryzen 7 1800X (Price Check), and the Intel Core i7-8700K (Price Check).

Radial Blur Speed – Photoshop CC 14

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores. This radial blur test was performed on a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

Look at that! The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X (Price Check) was a whopping 34% faster than the Ryzen 7 1800X (Price Check), and 39% faster than the Intel Core i7-8700K (Price Check).
