Intel Core i5-2520QM and The Asus K53E Notebook
On the video decode side of the equation, we selected an HD movie trailer clip to look at from resource utilization standpoint. With a powerful chip like the Core i5-2520QM, we didn't expect HD video playback to be an issue but regardless, we looked at CPU utilization playing back this1080p H.264 QuickTime clip. We fired up the I am Legend trailer .mov file with Windows Media Player, while taking note of thread activity in Windows Task Manager Performance Monitor.
