Extreme FSB 2: The Quad-Core Advantage?

Audio Encoding

Lame and OGG show no performance gains for four-core processing, with the dual-core Core 2 Duo E6750 leading the Core 2 Extreme QX6850 at all speeds.

The new DivX codec is obviously optimized for four-core processors, handing a win of greater than 100% to a processor that only has double the cores.

XviD normally encodes faster than DivX when dual-core processors are used, but we see the opposite occur with respect to the four-core Core 2 Extreme QX6850. The Core 2 Duo E6750 wins here.
