Encoding Performance

The DH61AG was only a fraction slower than the Z68M-ITX/HT in HandBrake and it's interesting to note that the Core i3-2120 delivered roughly the same performance as the AMD A6-3650.

Similar trends are seen in x264 HD Benchmark 4.0: the DH61AG was only slightly slower than the Z68M-ITX/HT and the Core i3-2120 was on par with the AMD A6-3650.

When testing with TMPGEnc 4.0 Xpress, the DH61AG was 5% slower than the Z68M-ITX/HT while the Core i3-2120 delivered similar performance to the Phenom II X6 1100T.
