Cinebench 10, a highly-threaded synthetic rendering benchmark, again reflected of what we've been seeing over the last few pages.

Moving on to video encoding using XMpeg and the latest DivX 6.8, performance here too was up to expectations as the Q9550 matched up against the QX6850, while the Q9450 bettered the old Q6700 in the cost to specifications department that also helped achieved its better performance.
