Video and Image Editing

Well-known Adobe software for video processing and image editing are optimized for multi-processor systems and Hyper-Threading technology. Moreover, these apps know to work in four threads. Therefore, dual-core Intel processor works pretty fast in Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere leaving all its single-core counterparts behind. However, the dual-core competitor from AMD, Athlon 64 X2 4800+, is still a little bit faster than Pentium Extreme Edition 840.

Character Recognition

We have already complained about the ABBYY software developers, who use multi-threading on Intel processors but do not use multi-threading on AMD processors. Here we see a perfect illustration of this selectiveness. While Pentium Extreme Edition 840 works much faster than the single core Pentium 4, Athlon 64 X2 4800+ appears as fast as the Athlon 64 4000+.
