Are there any bench test comparing 6 core with 4 cores?

Are there any bench test comparing 6 core with latest 4 cores? Video editing and rendering is my main area of interest.  Any info will be helpful

Re: Are there any bench test comparing 6 core with 4 cores?

There are lots of sites out there that compare all processors against each other - performance vs. value etc...

 

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/

http://www.cpuspeedpro.com/

 

Just search Internet for "cpu" and "benchmark"

 

Here is a good article on benchmarking

http://askbobrankin.com/cpu_benchmarking.html

and wiki of course.

RB, I am not certain that HP has this type of information for the consumer.  However, I suggest trying Tom's Hardware and AnandTech to see if they have the data that you want.

My understanding, limited as it is, is that more cores help simultaeously run programs...

 

...intensive programs such as Photoshop and video editing don't need as many as 6 cores as much as they need POWER: cpu, Ram, hyperthreading, available scratch disk space...and faster hard drives (SSD being the latest used to run OS/programs...)

GAMES and NEWER versions of Photoshop will use power in the graphic card

...few games access more than 2 cores or use hyperthreading, grabbing most power from the video card...hence the popularity of 2-core gaming machines, overclocked of course, and powerful 3-D capable video cards 

Video editing would fall in the "intensive" use category....

 

All which is why you need to match the machine to your needs....
