In the DivX encoding test, we see a 15% jump in performance from the Intel 840 to the 955 processor, though the 955 still can’t keep up with the results from even the Athlon X2 3800+.  In our MP3 encoding test, the 955 processor does better than expected beating out all but the top AMD processors.  Finally, in the WinRAR results, the Intel 955 has the fastest score of any of the dual-core products tested.
