Video Encoding and Photo Editing

DivX 6.1 with XMPEG 5.03

This test uses the latest DivX codec that supports multi-threaded encoding on the XMPEG application for easy encoding setup.  Here we had a 2 GB video that we asked XMPEG to convert the first 10,000 frames to DivX.

The FX-62 processor is able to take the win away from the Pentium 965 processor in our DivX 6.1 encoding test for the first time and also handily when the rest of our encoding and video application tests at the same time.  In all the cases seen here, the AM2 processor is running almost exactly as fast as the S939 4800+ processor.
