Optimized TTA Encoder 2006-05-04 07:51:59 Hi,I happened to have time to test this Optimized TTA encoder."Multiple Read and Write Buffer Solution (Intel Compiler Executable)"http://softlab.technion.ac.il/project/opti...source_code.htmApologies if this was already mentioned before.First off, apparently this optimized versioin doesn't work on a Non-HT/single-CPU machine. I got a broken file testing it on Win2K, non HT. The following result was obtained on WinXP SP2, HT, Prescott 3.4G, where I tested again and again that decoded WAV is identical to the Original WAV and I belive this tweaked ttaenc is working properly at least for this sample.In my test, Optimized TTAenc is significantly faster than Normal TTAenc. And it is a little faster now than WavPack default, in encoding, with better compression. WavPack def is still faster in decoding.On the other hand, WavPack -h gives me much better compression; it's slower, but I'd think 60~70 sec per CD is enough fast.Anyway, if you use TTA for some reason, and you are on a HT or Dual-CPU machine, you might want to test this optimized TTAenc.
