Ivy Bridge to process media up to 4X faster

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Than core 2010 today’s CPUs
We have some great info to share about Ivy Bridge 22nm CPU and the Chief River platform, which is scheduled to appear in 1H 2012.

Intel now claims that the new CPU and its integrated graphics can process media up to 4X faster. Intel calls this Quick Sync Video and some internal testing revealed that it can be significantly faster in creating and editing of your home videos.

Intel used Cyberlink Media Espresso 6 as a universal medial converter and they tested transcoding of 449MB file in 1920x1080 MPEG 2 video to a smaller 640x360 H.264 MPEG-4 video. The test finished four times faster than with Core 2010. This was actually transcoding from MPEG 2 to MPEG-4 but at the same time, the rendered file was much smaller as it was intended for iPhone and iPod Touch viewing.

Still, you can see that the media processor of Ivy Bridge graphics with its DirectX 11 support can transcode significantly faster and we are sure that people who record, edit and share their video work with the rest of the online addicts will appreciate it.

Doesn't sandy bridge already have this? What exactly is new?

@up

Tri-Gate and DX11. :lol:

why not test a 45 gigabyte fps1 file converting it into 1 smaller file ?

So intergrated graphics just got 4x faster. That's it. I wonder if this will eat into Nvidia's and AMD's midrange gpus?
If sandybridge created a 5ghz club imagine what a 22nm directx 11 chip ivybridge could do.

Media, not gaming, even with tri-gate transistors the intel GPUs won't keep up with AMD or Nvidia, also there is no reason why GPUs can't use tri-gate transistors after 18nm

4X faster with crappy quality output.
No thanks, I'll pass this one. ;-)

The output from Quick Sync isn't all that aweful, its a big step up from CUDA plus MediaShow Espresso gives shit results no matter what processor is used so not sure that is a fair comparision.

Also, Intel may improve the output quality by altering the code paths, not sure this is possible to maintain compatiblity but hopefully it is.

I still think Quick Sync just needs a good compiler, like Handbreak, to harness the power while not sacrificing the quality.

With it being Intel and being in every chip around i guess it will start to get some decent support soon.

One thing that no one seems to be addressing is that dispite Quick Sync's possible quality issues, and they are small if there at all in some cases, that when the super expensive LGA 2011 arrives in a few months it sill be massively slower than its much cheaper little brother at things like media encoding and image manipulation.

Doesn't anyone else think that is going to be a strange situation?

The speed is good. But it doesn't come for free. Intel Hardware H.264 encoder needs 1.4x more bandwidth for the same visual quality comparing to good software encoder (x264). http://compression.ru/video/codec_comparison/h264_2010/

Intel always sucked at GPU level even if it creates a weird monster with 5.000 shaders it will still be behind amd/nvidia ..A LOT :lol:
