2009 Workstation recovery – libvpx benchmark

I’m slowly upgrading my old 2009-era workstation into the modern world. It’s kind of a fun project! Although the CPUs are a bit long in the tooth, with 8 cores total it still can run some tasks faster than my more modern MacBook Pro with just 2 cores.

Enjoy some notes from benchmarking VP9 video encoding with libvpx and ffmpeg on the workstation versus the laptop…
