Media Center-related uses of a Dual Core CPU
by Jack Richins
Addicted to Digital Media reports on uses of Dual Core CPUs. Now this is cool: "Demo’d an Intel-based LRPC with Pentium-D dual core processor and Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 playing back WMV HD video while also processing a 3D game (eg. Doom3), recompressing the video into MPEG-2 and distributing it to another device & TV for play in the home. Not a hiccup in video performance on either system."
