MP3 encoding
Intel’s intensive efforts to get software producers to optimise their program code for modern processors -- Intel CPUs, naturally – continue to bear fruit. The MP3 encoder MusicMatch Jukebox has been optimised in version 7.0 for Intel’s Pentium 4, allowing the 2.53GHz Pentium 4 with Rambus to keep its nose in front of the new Athlon XP/2200+. The Pentium 4/2200 with DDR memory is slower than the Athlon XP, however.


Video encoding
Intel’s latest 533MHz-bus processors are faster than the Athlon XP/2200+ at video encoding with LSX’s MPEG Encoder 3.5, when equipped with Rambus memory. However, the Pentium 4/2200 with a 400MHz FSB and DDR266 memory lags behind the AMD processors in this test.


When it comes to producing DivX videos using XMpeg 4.5, the Pentium 4 emerges in front: the Athlon XP/2200+ takes 26 seconds longer than the 2.53GHz Pentium 4 to perform this test. Both the Athlon XP/2200+ and 2100+ beat the Pentium 4/2200 with DDR memory, though.
