Processor upgrade made transcode slower?
After moving to Plex + Roku's from having htpc's around the house, I noticed some problems with some videos and figured my Celeron G530 just wasn't up to task.
I just received a Xeon E3-1275 V2 (which is the fastest processor available for my mobo), and it appears to be running great except in my one before and after test, it appears to transcode slower?
The new CPU does support hardware assisted transcode, but regardless if I enable or disable it, I don't seem to get the speed I got in my "before" test video which transcoded at ~16x before and only ~7x now.
I am stumped about what the problem could be. There is no way that the g530 was faster than the new processor.
Here is my system in a nutshell:
8GB of DDR3-1600 ram
And a ton of storage.
