Today AMD announced a new modification of their quad-core processors aka Phenom II X4. The new CPUs are manufactured using advanced 45nm process, have higher clock speeds and larger L3 cache. But are these improvements enough to help AMD regain the high-performance processor market share?
Phenom II X4 demonstrated relatively high results during media content encoding (compared against its predecessors). In fact, they could have become a serious threat to mainstream Intel processors in video encoding tasks, if Intel hadn’t launched their new Core i7 two months before. The latest Intel solutions are way ahead of all their rivals in media encoding applications.
