Hello, I recently bought the Khadas Vim2 max and I’m testing it’s performance in video rendering with kdenlive.
I also have got an Odroid C2 and a Asus Tinkerboard to compare it with.
On paper the Khadas Vim2 max should be the best of these three with it’s extra 4 core’s and the extra gb of ram.
But the reality is that it performs the worst of them. I’m having problems understanding what the problem could be.
I’ve got two heatsinks and a fan on my Vim2, the termerature never goes higher than 55°C so no throttling.
I always have more than 1gb of ram in spare.
The first 90% of the render all cores are maxed out, the last 10% takes 40minutes and then the cores are far from maxed out.
It is a video project of 10 minutes in 1080p.
I have a video where I compared the Odroid C2 and the Tinkerboard, I use the same video project now on the Vim2.
The results until now:
Khadas Vim2: 1h43m46s
Odroid C2: 1h43m01s (overclocked to 1.75Ghz)
I’m filming everything again, but I’ll wait to publish until I’ve found out what the problem exactly is
I use SBC’s for video editing when traveling. That’s why my benchmarks are video rendering, that’s what I need them for.
I hope someone can help me with this. I’ll also ask on the kdenlive forums if somebody could give an explanation.
