We set our testbed out to encode a five minute video clip into Windows Media format at a bitrate of 250kbps. Here, the extra bandwidth offered by PC1066 RDRAM decreases the encoding time by about 4%. In total, moving from the 3.2GB/s of memory and FSB bandwidth offered by the 850 chipset to the 4.2GB/s offered by the 850E decreases the encoding time by about 6%.
