In HandBrake, we see the 2600 and 2700 score a bit lower than we expected in transcoding, but that's partially due to the lower clock speeds of the two processors. We see solid results in Science Mark, so the processors should do well with many legacy programs. Single threaded performance isn't stellar, but that's also due to frequency.
