Our test with Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 is performed with a raw two hour AVI file. It is then compressed into DivX format using the latest version codec. We measure the time it takes to encode and then record CPU usage.
Both Hybrid and IGP modes slow the system down here as the aim is CPU speed and memory bandwidth. In both IGP only and Hybrid mode, system memory and bandwidth has been stolen for frame buffer duties.
