Hello

I currently have a X6 1055T and do a lot of encoding with HandBrake (from ISO to H264 for example)
What would be a faster CPU in that domain if I were to replace my current one?

Thanks

Define "in that domain." If you mean in the AMD series, I'd pick up an FX-8120 and overclock it. You happen to do one of the things the FX processors are very good at. The FX 8150 beats the 2600K in encoding performance in HandBrake.

By "in that domain", I meant video encoding.....I don't do gaming

I'd grab an FX-8120 then. You could get an Intel hex-core CPU which would outperform it but you're looking at an extra $300 for that at the very least.

What motherboard are you using currently, if its not FX compatible then pick up these parts.

AMD CPU FX Series 8120 Black Edition 8 Core Processor Bulldozer

Asus M5A99X EVO, AMD 990X, S AM3+, DDR3, SATA III - 6Gb/s, RAID SATA, PCIe 2.0 (x16), ATX

Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO, 4 Heat Pipes Direct Contact, with 120mm Quiet Fan LGA775/1155/1156/1366/AM2/AM2+/AM3/FM1

You will then be able to easily OC your FX to 4.0ghz and at this speed you will see one hell of a jump in your encoding work.

Hi :) 

If you can find one... an AMD 1100T BE ... like mine....

All the best Brett :)

I found an article here in Tomshardware that says that a stock i5-2550k matches a stock FX-8150.
If this is correctly, a Core i7 shall make you fly. If you makes money with this computer I shall recommend the faster (and costly) option. It's an investment.

You can overclock your current processor for higher performance! It is the cheapest method compared to buying an entirely new processor!
