"While the above table does a very good job of making our arguments
for us, that the Core i5-750 is the best deal for a Lynnfield processor,
there are still some cases where the performance provided by HyperThreading
and the slight boost in clock speed might make the jump to the Core i7-860 a
worthwhile decision. Without a doubt moderate-to-heavy transcoding
applications SHOULD be using as much processing power as you can throw at
them, and Handbrake is by far the most popular for that."
