CPU Benchmark

Updated whenever I can.

Note: It seems that HandBrake don't scale well with more that 32 threads.

Encoding a 2h video (live concert from Japanese TV, MPEG-2, dark scene with grain) at 1280x720 resolution.

$ HandBrakeCLI -i in.ts -o out.mp4 -f av_mp4 -O -e x264 --encoder-preset slow --encoder-tune grain --encoder-profile high --encoder-level auto -q 20 --vfr -E copy:aac -w 1280 -l 720 --decomb --detelecine --crop 0:0:0:0
