Both iTunes and LAME show that the 300 MHz advantage of the SBM machine is probably responsible for a slight advantage in this race.
We see a little spice in the video benchmarks, with TMPG slightly favoring the MaxForce PC with its faster DDR3 memory and CloneDVD slightly favoring the SBM system’s higher overclock.
When it comes to 3D rendering, the systems are once again neck-in-neck, with the SBM machine still showing that clock speed is often the deciding factor when it comes to real-world applications.
Given our experiences with Photoshop, this is where only having 2 GB of system memory is really hurting MaxForce’s configuration.
It doesn’t get any closer than this, folks—WinRAR shows us exactly the same scores for both platforms.
