Encoding Performance

The clock speed advantage enjoyed by the Kaby Lake series was realized in our first encoding test. Here the 7700K was 7% faster than the 6700K while the 7600K was 6% faster than the 6600K.

We are back to 1-2% gains when testing with Hybrid x265, the new Kaby Lake processors didn't really offer anything new here.

Running the x264 HD Benchmark saw the 7700K pull ahead of the 6700K by an 8% margin while the 7600K was just 6% faster than the 6600K.
