EnCodec

EnCodec is a Facebook/Meta developed AI means of compressing audio files using High Fidelity Neural Audio Compression. EnCodec is designed to provide codec compression at 6 kbps using their novel AI-powered compression technique. The test profile uses a lengthy JFK speech as the audio input for benchmarking and the performance measurement is measuring the time to encode the EnCodec file from WAV.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark encodec.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

EnCodec 0.1.1

Target Bandwidth: 24 kbps

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 260 public results since 2 November 2022 with the latest data as of 20 March 2024.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (EnCodec 0.1.1 - Target Bandwidth: 24 kbps) has an average run-time of 3 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
