MPV

MPV is an open-source, cross-platform media player. This test profile tests the frame-rate that can be achieved unsynchronized in a desynchronized mode.

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

MPV

Video Input: Big Buck Bunny Sunflower 1080p - Decode: Software Only

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 161 public results since 23 September 2020 with the latest data as of 1 August 2022.

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 (MPV - Video Input: Big Buck Bunny Sunflower 1080p - Decode: Software Only) 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.

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.
