Can these specs perform HEVC encoding well

Post by stormnature » Fri Oct 23, 2015 9:23 pm

I am looking to upgrade to a newer CPU, RAM and a Mobo. I have come to these 3 and would like opinions if these are sufficient.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GXM
MSI Z97A SLI KRAIT Edition LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Xeon E3-1231V3 Haswell 3.4 GHz LGA 1150 80W BX80646E31231V3 Server Processor

These are my current specs.
Boot: Kingston SSDNow 300 120 GB
Graphics: PNY GTX 660ti
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition at 3.2GHz
Ram: Corsair Dominator 4x 2GB TW3X4G1600C9D
PSU: COOLER MASTER Real Power Pro1000 RS-A00-EMBA 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 Plus
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 (rev. 3.0)

Sufficient for what? HD with slow settings will be slow. DVD with fast settings will be OK.

I mean sufficient "better" performing than my previous CPU plus room to watch Twitch streams with no lag or slowdowns if at all possible. I will be encoding in slow. I have also been thinking about going with the AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz CPU with this RAM HyperX Fury White Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model HX318C10FWK2/16 instead of buying another mobo/switching to intel to cut down on price. The total for these 2 items and the CoolerMaster evo 212 totals to $287.97.

There is a benchmarking forum below the support forums.
That's where you need to post, not in the "General" area.

Yes, a quad core haswell is going to kick the [Censored] out of the phenom.

8350 is a power-hungry turd, get the Xeon.

Power hungry as in use more PSU power? If that is the case wouldn't a 1000 watt PSU tame its hunger for power?

Sure the PSU is fine, still stresses many mobo power delivery, and needs a higher performance cooler.
