Application: DivX and MP3 Encoding, WinRAR and PCMark

XMPEG 5.03 and DivX 5.1.1


AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 and 4000+ Processor - Processors  1

Though the Athlon 64 FX-55 does improve performance by about 8%, the Intel CPUs are still in the lead across the board as the DivX codec is optimized for SSE3 and HyperThreading.

LAME MP3


AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 and 4000+ Processor - Processors  2

Again we see the FX-55 processor makes a nice jump in MP3 encoding speed, decreasing the required time by 13 seconds, or 8%.  It is good to see performance scaling like this on the frequency for AMD’s processors.

WinRAR


AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 and 4000+ Processor - Processors  3

AMD’s domination in the WinRAR test continues and gets even stronger with the FX-55 pushing the time 7 seconds faster than the previous best.

PCMark04


AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 and 4000+ Processor - Processors  4

Mainly in this PCMark04 run we want to look at the CPU performance, which is still heavily in Intel’s favor based on the use of multiple threads in the benchmark.
