DivX 5.1.1 Encoding
This version of DivX does have support for SSE3 instructions, of which the Prescott processors may take advantage, but the point of interest here is that the Athlon 64 FX-53 is in a dead heat with the Pentium 4 3.2GHz EE. The FX-53 is really putting AMD up into the thick of the battle in a traditionally Intel dominated area. That's not to say that Intel has lost its lead in this area, but that it is good to see AMD giving them more competition.
