MP3 Encoding, WMEx64 and WinRAR Tests
LAME MT MP3 Encoding
This custom test uses the LAME MT engine to benchmark encoding a 650 MB WAV file into a standard 128 kbps MP3 file. We used the Microsoft compiler for the most fair results.
Windows Media Encoder 9 x64
This custom test uses the standard Windows Media Encoder to convert a 720p HD video file to a 2Mb CBR DVD-quality video in two passes.
WinRAR 3.70 Beta 8
Our own custom WinRAR benchmark, this test takes a large 650 MB text file and compresses it with the highest compression option.
Once again the Core 2 Duo E6750 processor shows good performance on par with the current Intel processors. There is still one case in which the 1333 MHz FSB E6750 is slower than the E6700; here it’s in our WinRAR benchmark.
