Media Encoding (H.264)
Leading Performance on the most widely used codec today!
Ampere Cloud-Native processors are designed to deliver exceptional performance and power efficiency for applications like video transcoding. The x.264 library, which implements the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC standard is very widely used today in a variety of video streaming services, runs extremely well on Ampere processors at scale. The relative results of two key performance metrics vs. x86 competitive platforms are shown here in the charts:
System configurations, components, software versions, and testing environments that differ from those used in Ampere’s tests may result in different measurements than those obtained by Ampere. The system configurations and components used in our testing are detailed
Ampere Altra Systems
Ampere Altra and Ampere Altra Max. These systems are flexible enough to meet the needs of any cloud deployment and come packed with Ampere's 80-core Altra or 128-core Altra Max processors
Equinix Metal, an on-demand digital infrastructure platform, has created Gen3 configs with Ampere Altra for common workloads which are available in minutes on bare metal
OCI Ampere A1
Ampere Altra and Oracle Cloud combine predictable performance, near-linear scaling, and secure architecture with the best price-performance in the market in the following shapes:
Here at Ampere we've built an extensive infrastructure focused on Continuous Integration, Delivery, and Regression (called CIDR).
Our testing runs 24/7/365 in our regression infrastructure.
Results are categorized as either 'Verified' or 'Unverified'.
Test and build infrastructure can encounter complexities or unexpected speed bumps. Known incidents and their resolutions will be documented where applicable.
Date,Platform and OS details of verified test results are displayed on hover bubble.
