PCMark 8 Video Editing

Video Editing v2 Part 2 (Creative 3.0 test suite)

This workload uses FFmpeg to apply video enhancement filters to a high bitrate H.264 video and then encode it to a format suitable for distribution. The FFmpeg binary used is custom built by Futuremark using a development version of the source available from the project's code repository. The test applies a deshaking filter to a source video at 3,840 x 2160 (4K UHD) before scaling down and outputting at 1,920 x 1,080 (1080p).

PCMark 8 Photo Editing V2

This workload involves making a series of adjustments to a set of photographs using ImageMagik - an open-source image processing library to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation and gamma. When a favourable balance is found, the changes are then applied to the rest of the images in the set. TIFF files up to 67MB in size are used.

SATA and M.2 Performance

Website: CrystalDiskMark

We test the SATA and performance with a Samsung SSD 850 PRO, as this is one of the fastest SSDs we've ever tested, and it can saturate the bandwidth of SATA 6Gbps ports.

For the M.2 port, we use a Kingston KyperX Predator SSD. This is rated at 1,400MB/sec read - not quite saturating the M.2 interface but we've been unable to get our mitts on anything faster for long term testing as the interface is still in its infancy.

We're keen to test the maximum throughput in our storage tests and to do this we've employed Samsung's SSD 950 Pro M.2 256GB NVMe SSD for some additional testing using a newer version of CrystalDiskMark. We'll be retiring our older M.2 test results as soon as we have a good base of comparison numbers.
