Again, big thanks to Steve (http://youtube.com/wrightwayphotography) and his girl, for coming down this weekend to spend time with us. And for assisting me in doing these video tests. Geeking out, is always fun.
This video, we put both MBP’s to the test by rendering a 2:47 1080p .mov, down to a 720p H.264 encoded .mp4..
In this video, were are doing a side by side comparison of two 15″, MacBook Pro’s. Both are 2.66Ghz processors, with 4GB of RAM. The MPB on the left, belongs to Steve Wright from WrightWay Photo, and is the new Intel i7. Mine is on the right, and is the Intel Core 2 Duo. Which one will win? Will it make a difference? Watch and Find out.
Quick review of the Speck See Thru Satin case for the Apple MacBook. Since I’ve had it exactly one month, I figured I would let peeps know I like, and recommend it.
Sorry in advance for the hum on the audio. Every now and again, I have a issue with my lav mic and the mono to stereo adapter I use. Didn’t catch it till I was done, and at midnight, it’s too late to re-record.
Video encoding is one of those tasks that is very CPU intensive, and when you perform these tasks, you are also utilizing other components on your system. RAM, FSB etc.
Continuing to test my new MacBook Pro, I performed some DVD ripping tests.
For these tests, I used a non-comercial DVD that is 12:44 in length. It was encoded into an Apple TV compatible H.264 mp4.
The first set of tests were directly from the optical drive. Let’s begin..
