Intel finally updated their Core i7 family and introduced two new solutions that feature not only higher clock frequency, but also have new D0 processor stepping. So, the new processors can boast not only better performance but also certain advantages during overclocking, improved heat dissipation and power consumption.
The situation in video editing tasks is almost the same as during simple encoding. The entire Core i7 family copes perfectly fine with this type of load becoming up to several times faster than their competitors! Looks like most microarchitectural optimizations introduced in Nehalem processors, Hyper-Threading technology and SSE4.2 instructions support are most beneficial for applications working with media content.
