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.
Intel's more efficient CPU architecture comes into play once again. Even the older Pentium D and Extreme Edition line of CPUs were able to beat AMD in media encoding tasks, and the Core 2 continues this by knocking a good few minutes off the encode time.
