What a pointless test between two of Apple's compressors. It's pretty standard knowledge of anyone with some experience to realize Apple's implementation of MPEG-4 is by far the worst in the industry. They stopped development in favor of MPEG-4/10 and it shows.

Here's a better comparison across the entire range of codecs based in and around MPEG-4.

Although H.264 is not compared, I'd say its close to Windows AVC codec.

Thanks

That Sorenson codec was good.

Ehrm... That Sorenson codec is H.264.

"MPEG-4 AVC" is just another name for H.264.

Apple referred to it many times as "H.264/AVC", as does Sony.
