Encoding Performance

There was virtually no difference in performance in HandBrake as all boards rendered an average of 86fps.

Likewise, almost all of the boards rendered 95-96fps in the x264 HD Benchmark 3.0 with the exception of Asrock's P67 Extreme6, which averaged 99.9fps.

When testing with TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress we found that the boards took between 6.17 and 6.22 minutes to complete the conversion. That's less than a 1% difference, so while the MSI P67A-GD55 was the slowest board tested, it's not a crucial result.
