HD Video Playback
We opted for some Iron Man 2 to assist us with this test, utilising the 1080p HD MKV file to check on CPU utilisation. Running the movie using VLC Player and using a predefined action scene, we check the CPU usage to see how it fairs with HD video playback.
Intel’s 4th Generation processors have made themselves well know, especially when it comes to transcoding and playing back multimedia content. Playing back a full HD film didn’t even cause the processor to break out in a sweat with little CPU time required.
