Here are the latest performance results for AV1 reference codecs. Elecard engineers have encoded video sequences to compare performance of video codecs and quality of final video.
The most intriguing result obtained after analysis of the data lies in the fact that the developed codec AV1 is currently equal in its performance with HEVC.
