3D Rendering: Newtek Lightwave 7.5
Intel 850E and SiS 658 achieve the same level in the Lightwave benchmark.
MPEG-2 Video Encoding: Pinnacle Studio 8.5
Creating an MPEG-2 film with Pinnacle Studio 8.5 is fastest when using the Intel 850E platform. In this category, Rambus still sets the example to be followed. Nevertheless, second place goes to the dual DDR333 platform, closely followed by the SiS 658 in conjunction with PC1066 memory.
