I'd like to ask a question about benchmarking process. On the IBC show in Amsterdam Intel demonstrated live transcode of 4K AVC source into HEVC with 90fps. When using sample_multi_transcode tool with -u 7 settings the best results I've got was ~56FPS transcoding 25Mbps 4k AVC into HEVC elementary stream. I ran this test on intel NUC NUC6I7KYK I7-6770HQ using linux version of the SDK. Could you please describe your benchmarking process, what samples and hardware did you use?
You're right, we demonstrated 4K AVC to HEVC transcoding with 90fps at IBC. I see one difference from what you described: we used HPE moonshot m710x powered by Intel Xeon 1585 v5 Server.
