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.
Adobe Premiere Elements suffers a bit, as extra bandwidth is a key factor here and the onboard graphics definitely sucks in this regard. When rendering comes into play, 3D takes place and system memory gets sucked away, as does more bandwidth.
