Intel Pentium 4 @ 3.06GHz with Hyper-Threading - Benchmarks - Multimedia Productivity

The Pentium 4 processor at 3.06GHz is here and it certainly means business not only breaking the impressive 3GHz barrier but sporting a new technology called Hyper-Threading (HT). Wouldn't it be nice to have dual processing support from a single processor? Well in theory, at least, you can with the latest processor from Intel. Read on as Cameron "Sov" Johnson takes us on a discovery of the Pentium 4 3.06GHz processor to determine whether or not HT and a little extra core speed boast is worth our upgrading dollars or not!

WinAce

 

WinAce is one of todays many compression standards, and widely used in businesses for storage of large multimedia documents, images and various other files.

 

 

This shows that the Intel Pentium 4 running 3.06GHz reduces the compression time needed to create an archive out of 170MB worth of data. When combined with Hyper-Threading, you see that the time is reduced yet again, proving that Hyper-Threading in office work can improve the way you do your business.

 

MPEG4 Encoding with DIVX 5.02 (Xing)

 

DIVX encoding, if one of the most used forms of multimedia transformations that is being done by many end users, to convert their DVD titles, and even various other captured media to a highly compressed state, DIVX or MPEG4 as it is known, is the most popular format for this.

 

 

Running a 3 GHz powered system gives a slight advantage over the 2.8GHz. Hyper-Threading gives the system a much needed burst to increase the frame rate for smooth encoding and playback.
