Performance during Video Transcoding
Video transcoding is one of the few tasks where contemporary AMD processors show their real power. In nominal mode Phenom II X4 965 is far ahead of Core 2 Quad Q9400 and is almost as fast as Core i5-750. However, since Intel processors have higher relative overclocking potential, the Core i5-750 working at 4 GHz frequency runs considerably faster than the AMD solution overclocked to the same level. But the LGA775 CPU can’t boast the same success: despite the fact that its frequency increases more during overclocking than that of the Phenom II X4 965, the AMD solutions till performs better during video transcoding.
