Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

Also, I realize me filling this thread with data and exposition when its really about something else is sort of a tangent, I'll make another thread later on rather than continue in here.

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

I'm not trying to optimize for anything except maximum thread usage during the encode stage. The preset, as I've set it up at least, walks the line between encoder speed and quality so changing it isn't something I'm particularly interested in doing, and I'm happy with the encoding speed. Compared t...

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

You being a bit of an insufferable tit aside (really, man, I don't need your arrogant attitude), I've got more/better numbers if anyone else is curious. I dug into the BIOS and made some adjustments to my CPU power settings (gained a nice 10% performance increase due to properly operating turbo boos...

Re: Own benchmark comparison using a linux terminal

Personally, I generate a preset in the GUI, export it as a JSON, then import it in the CLI. My command (altered to make it more generic):

Code: Select all

 HandBrakeCLI --preset-import-file /path/to/preset.json -i /path/to/movie.mkv -o /path/to/movie/libray/movie.mp4 --preset="Apple4KFast"
Simple as that.

Re: HandBrakeCLI 1.3.2 "Invalid preset" on custom preset.

Glad they fixed this in 1.3.3. I ran into this previously even though I never use built in presets, I was worried I’d have to troubleshoot my pkg install in FreeNAS. Wasn’t excited about that. Glad it was a bug.

Re: Own benchmark comparison using a linux terminal

You could just trim the default profile/preset if all you’re looking for is relative speed difference. Or one of the built in presets. Do you need assistance in generating the CLI command itself? Or just choosing a preset? Because if Ymir’s just the preset, just specify the one you already use in th...

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

With respect, I'm not interested in debating the merits of hyperthreading, I understand what it is, I understand its not "double" the performance. However it can absolutely provide a meaningful performance increase over a non hyperthreaded CPU, and the difference is often a lot more than 10% as you'...

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

@8Ringer: Couple of points: 1. If you don't need Interlace detection and decbom, turn them off. You probably don't if your dealing with 1080p. Filters can and usually are a bottleneck. 2. Another possible bottleneck is decode. Particularly on lower clockspeed chips. Ideally, >3.5Ghz base chips will...

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

It’s a dual socket 2620 v3, so 2x6core with hyper threading, 24 hardware threads, verified at boot in FreeBSD. Sorry if that wasn’t clear. You've only got 12 actual cores, they're just duplicated with SMT to squeeze out another ~10% in some situations. I know what SMT is, and I know there are only ...

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

Ok so here is some more detailed info. So, just to remove variables and keep this data more relevant to the thread (and now that they fixed built-in preset references in CLI) I have the encoding log here from the "Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround" preset: root@Handbrake:~ # nohup HandBrakeCLI -i /mnt/...

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

Just as a quick followup, I misunderstood what you ere trying to accomplish with the thread numbers, you were trying to diagnose the root cause, not try to get full utilization. Anyway I've played arounda nd adding in the --encopts 'pmode=1:pme=1' has kicked CPU utilization up to 1800%. Further add...

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

nhyone, I just put together a FreeNAS rig with dual 2620v3 Xeons, very similar to your setup above but 6-core/12-thread parts. I'm currently seeing ~60% utilization with my HEVC encodes (using a custom exported preset based loosely on the Apple HEVC 4k preset, with a minor tweak to audio settings an...
