Quad FX platform performs quite well during video encoding. At least the codecs supporting multi-processor configurations work faster in this system than in a single-processor testbed with Athlon 64 FX-62. However, once again the ultimate leaders are Intel’s quad-core CPUs.
Quad FX platform performed as fast as a system equipped with one dual-core CPU in the codecs supporting only two threads maximum. And it again means that it is behind Intel processors on Core micro-architecture.
