Our test with Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0 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.
This is where we expected DDR3 to shine, but it didn't go as fast as we had hoped in comparison to what DDR2 offers. It seems that AMD's K10 may not really be able to handle DDR3 as well as first thought. While it does manage to wipe a bit of time off the encode, it's certainly not a groundbreaking result.
