Image, Audio and Video Editing
The situation is very similar during image and audio editing. Pentium E2000 processors leave their competitors far behind thanks to their progressive Core micro-architecture. And note that this is also true for the Pentium E2140 with the “ridiculous” 1.6GHz clock speed. Even this buddy is winning a confident victory over Pentium D 925 and Athlon 64 X2 3600+.
Non-linear video editing tasks reveal slightly different results. Although Pentium E2160 is the fastest of all sub-$100 dual-core processors, Pentium E2140 still yields a little bit to Athlon 64 X2 3600+.
