MP3 Audio Encoding: Lame MP3
The Lame MP3 Encoder under Windows XP is used to convert a 178 MB sound file from a WAV format to an MPEG-1 Layer 3 format. The AMD Athlon XP 2000+ is the top dog in this race, encoding the file 15 seconds faster than the Intel Pentium 4/2000 does.
MPEG-4 Video Encoding: Flash MPEG And Divx
The Athlon XP 2000+ hits a refresh rate of 24.5 frames per second while encoding - this widens its lead over the Intel Pentium 4 even more!
