media sdk h264 encode performance


Hi, I have the Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz. How could I know this cpu can support how many sessions encode raw 1920*1080 rgb frames to h264 video 30fps  Simultaneously.

Hello there - You could use the sample_multi_transcode code example to get the numbers you are looking for. This sample allows you to run multiple instances of transcode, and prints the transcode performance (in fps) at the end of the execution. That is a good way to get what you want. (You can download the samples from here -

From my experiments on i7-4770R, for HD resolution AVC transcodes, you should see ~12 transcodes that can happen real-time or better. Hope this helps.
