SVT-AV1

This is a benchmark of the SVT-AV1 open-source video encoder/decoder. SVT-AV1 was originally developed by Intel as part of their Open Visual Cloud / Scalable Video Technology (SVT). Development of SVT-AV1 has since moved to the Alliance for Open Media as part of upstream AV1 development. SVT-AV1 is a CPU-based multi-threaded video encoder for the AV1 video format with a sample YUV video file.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark svt-av1.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (SVT-AV1 1.8 - Encoder Mode: Preset 4 - Input: Bosphorus 4K) has an average run-time of 4 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.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

Yes, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
