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.
Moving into real world testing, at stock speeds both boards are identical so there is no need to spend the extra on the Extreme if you're just going for a stock clocked rig. When we overclock, the Extreme knocks a couple minutes off the encode time, which is what we would expect. However, you really have to be pushing the overclock to do it.
