Intel 2-core 2.40 GHz VS. AMD 4-core 2.20 GHz

I found a ASUS computer with a AMD CPU with 4-core @ 2.20 GHz, my computer now (Dell) has a INTEL 2-core 2.40 GHz.
Which is better for video editing, Watching full-HD videos and 4K videos. Making Blu-rays and DVDs, Watching Blu-rays and DVDs. It will be running programs like Sony Vegas PRO 12.1 and ArcSoft Total media Theatre ETC.

This computer will also be my main computer:??:

    Multitasking = more cores.

    Yea but the Intel is .20Ghz faster, Does that matter?
  3. I'm assuming that you are comparing the E6600 vs the Phenom 9500. The E6600 is faster in single core processes but the Phenom is faster in multi core processes. If your motherboard supports it you could put an Intel Q6600 in and get better performance than the Phenom.
  4. Don't forget the fact, that if you are speaking of some AMD's that are said to have 4 cores have actually only got 2 cores, but 2 modules per core, for exapmle: FX-series.

    The processor is the AMD phenom 9500 series.

    I'm not looking for speed, I'm looking for which is the most powerful processor.

    Obviously the quad core is more powerful for that.

    Yea so I found out! I also found out that something is wrong with ether the motherboard or the CPU because I tried it but Windows kept given me that BSOD.
    I went back to the Dell! You were right about Quad Core!
