Nonlinear Video Editing
We tested the performance during video movie rendering in Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 and during the preparation of the video movie for posting on YouTube using a standard Windows Vista application aka Windows Movie Maker.
Although during our performance tests during media content encoding we couldn’t make any definite conclusions, now that we have checked out the processor performance in nonlinear video editing tasks, we can state that both, AMD and Intel dual-core CPUs priced similarly, show comparable results during different types of video content processing.
Athlon 64 X2 processors have always proven pretty successful in 3D rendering tasks. However, the upcoming price drop will improve their performance rate in this type of tasks even more. In other words, AMD CPUs will boast much higher performance here than Intel Core 2 Duo or Pentium D priced similarly.
