Three High-End Gaming Systems Compared

32-bit Audio and Video Benchmarks

iTunes couldn’t use the extra cores of the Vigor Gaming system, while Lame MP3 wouldn’t even run on the complicated rig. It’s a shame to see the extra processing power unused.

DivX MPG4 and Mainconcept H.264 take all the processing power they can get, rewarding the Vigor Gaming Colossus with a colossal lead.

Again, in a demonstration that most apps still aren’t optimized for workstation-level processing power, Pinnacle Studio 12 is unable to fully utilize the Vigor Gaming Colossus’ eight-core configuration. The Falcon Northwest Mach 5 leads slightly.
