However during video encoding, Phenom II X4 810 shows its real best. For example, it even competes successfully against a more expensive Core 2 Quad Q8300 in x264 codec. It must be due to a highly efficient FPU/SSE unit of the CPUs on Stars (K10) microarchitecture.
It is very hard to put together a general verdict here. As you can see from the diagrams, everything depends on the application used for rendering needs. Nevertheless, Phenom II X4 810 did not bad at all showing very good results even in 3ds max that has always been Intel’s turf.
