Encoding times in single-threaded iTunes and LAME highlight the Pentium’s mighty per-clock performance.
However effectiveness in parallel tasks such as Handbrake and Total Code Studio is stymied by its dual-thread limitation.
Results are pretty much as expected when rounded to the nearest whole second, though the current machine lagged a bit behind in Handbrake. Also, take note of the same two to three percent overclocked performance reduction surfacing here as was demonstrated on the previous page’s synthetic processor tests.
