A Pentium 4 is better at video editing and encoding, as a dual core Pentium has 4 cores, two of which are logical, while a X2 only has 2 cores, neither of which are logical.

intel has been better at video editing, but I'd say that now with dual cores amd and intel are about as good. The amd x2 cpus are awesome.

Are you talking about Hyper Threading? Only the Pentium D Extream edition has HT.

AMD also has Hyper Transport.

Sorry, got mixed up I'm an idiot.

Get an X2, it'll be the same performance as a Pentium D.
