Audio and Video Encoding
The diagrams below deliver the results in seconds. That is why the lower is the value, the faster is the CPU.
Audio and video streams encoding is one of the trumps of Intel’s NetBurst architecture. AMD CPUs have always been behind their Intel rivals in applications of this kind. However, higher clock frequency of the new Athlon 64 FX-53 ensures a significant performance gain so that AMD newcomer manages to almost catch up with Pentium 4 3.4E on Prescott core, which is sometimes slower than the predecessors on Northwood core working at the same clock frequency because of its longer pipeline.
