Sony Vegas & Valve Particle Systems Benchmark
Sony Vegas 7.0b
The Vegas+DVD Production Suite combines Vegas 7, DVD Architect 4, and Dolby Digital AC-3 encoding software to offer an integrated environment for all phases of professional video, audio, DVD, and broadcast production. This suite lets you edit and process DV, HDV, SD/HD-SDI, and all XDCAM formats in real time, fine-tune audio with precision, and author surround sound, dual-layer DVDs.
Running our custom Sony Vegas 7.0b benchmark showed that AMD’s Quad FX FX-74 system came in roughly 36 seconds behind Intel’s QX6700 processor.
Valve Particle Performance Metric
Running the particle simulation benchmark provided to Legit Reviews during Valve’s editor’s day we are able to use Valve’s custom SMP benchmark to measure processor performance. The results once again showed that the Intel QX6700 hands down beat out the AMD Quad FX test system.
