    Port: 1Gb/s
    Bandwidth: 20Tb
    Clients Per Server: 8
    OS: Windows Server 2008
    Location: United Kingdom

    CPU: Xeon 2 x E5620 (16 Threads)

    The first CPU has a higher clock rate and the second has more threads so the important question :

    Does your encoding application utilise multiple threads?

    And the other important question:

    Will the providers you're considering be ok with you using a large amount of the CPU time (ask them!)

    The answers to these questions should ultimately answer your question.

    Your budget is low increase your budget.
    Failure is success if we learn from it.

    How many clients are on the 2nd one?

    On the first, you're promised only a single core, given that it shares with 8 clients (and also assuming the host isn't lying).
