Overclocking provided a 40% reduction in encoding time in both audio applications. We've seen both titles respond to clock speed in the past, so we wouldn't expect these results to improve much, even if we were using a quad-core chip.
Unlike in the audio suite, a dual-core CPU isn’t very impressive in the video suite. But at least raising the E5200’s core speeds still provides a solid 34-38% decrease in encoding time.
