Based on what workload?
How about we stick to Handbrake 0.9.9.1? That way, we all have comparable results:

HandBrake-0.9.9-1_i686-Win_GUI.exe Windows 32-bit version GUI
HandBrake-0.9.9-1_x86_64-Win_GUI.exe Windows 64-bit version GUI

HandBrake-0.9.9-1_i686-Win_GUI.exe Windows 32-bit version CLI
HandBrake-0.9.9-1_x86_64-Win_GUI.exe Windows 64-bit version CLI

HandBrake-0.9.9-MacOSX.6_GUI_x86_64.dmg Mac OS X 10.6 / 10.7 / 10.8 GUI
HandBrake-0.9.9-MacOSX.6_CLI_x86_64.dmg Mac OS X 10.6 / 10.7 / 10.8 CLI

If you want to bench it with a nightly version, feel free, but only 0.9.9.1 stable release ^ will be added to the official Edgemeal's scoresheet.

You can re-code this (click Download) to mp4 using Android Preset and note the times, to make it comparable to other systems. Go to Options > Advanced, tick "Put a copy of individual encode logs in the same location as the encoded video". Upon finishing, check the log file. And post the results like this:

Code:
HandBrake 0.9.9.5530 - 64bit Version

CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G2020 @ 2.90GHz

This is how long it took a G2020 @ 3.0 Ghz to encode Big Buck Bunny to an Android-friendly format. Use CPU-Z to get the RAM settings.

NB: HB uses some SSE 4.2/AVX instructions, so the speed will vary. Keep that in mind.

So, what's your average fps? :biggrin:

EDIT: Balla, re-download the video file. I put up a smaller version on Skydrive.

I get a few more FPS with your nightly :p

Code:

Four-fold advantage, it's about right, but I expected more from AVX2, to be frank. Can you re-run it with only 2 cores clocked at 3.0 Ghz?

OP, I advise making an ongoing list in the original post

(Probably not the best score since I was on Facebook chatting at the same time; it dropped the FPS usually down to like 7)

This took 10 freaking minutes. I want 10 minutes back.

Where do I see the results at? Can't find where to view results, but at the 100% point it was about 340fps average.

If you do what was mentioned here : "Go to Options > Advanced, tick "Put a copy of individual encode logs in the same location as the encoded video". Upon finishing, check the log file."

You should have a log file that will give you the exact info.

If you didn't set the copy log option you should still find the log files in the logs folder (unless you cleared them),
for Win7,... C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\HandBrake\logs

or go to, Tools > Options > Advanced > View Log Directory to open the folder,
You should see a log file named something like, bunny.mp4 6-28-2013 7-28-09 PM.txt , look in that file for the start, fps,etc info.
