Someone test it and tell us how it compares to Lancer.
Steve Jobs disappointed me by not coming out with a 100 Gb iPod to hold the 9,800 M4As I'd spent since Christmas transcoding from FLAC to Nero M4As.
How much faster are SSE2 and SSE3 versions of lancer compared to SSE?
Quote from: HydroFred on 11 February, 2007, 07:00:05 AMHow much faster are SSE2 and SSE3 versions of lancer compared to SSE?SSE2/3 has less importance on lancer. But MT enables ~1.4 times faster encoding.Benchmark on Athlon64 X2 and Core2Duo FYI.Lancers MT makes use of up to 2 core per encoding. If you have quad core, you have to run 2 instances at a time, Lancer is enough fast tho
I kind of wonder why you don't just run two single-threaded encoders instead of the multithreaded one. Usually you'll encode multiple files anyway. That way it'd be ~2x as fast instead of 1.4x...
ye, new problems are coming up, there are 4-core cpu`s on the market, and early will be 8. We need a solution, unlike:1. lancer need`s to check out how many cores in system2. use them all3. it will be bad idea to limit him on 8 cores...(maybe this is not the end?)
Does anyone know if there are lancer static-built binaries for windows I can download anywhere? This would be very useful, thanks.
