Intel i7 4930k (Ivy-Bridge) vs. AMD FX-9590 processor for Video Encoding

Intel i7 4930k - Ivy Bridge = 6 Cores (12 with hyper-threading)
AMD FX-9590 - Unlocked = 8 Cores at a stupid fast 4.9 GHz

So the question becomes which one is better for video encoding. I tend to do alot of encoding when I rip DVD's to play on my Xbox 360. It's basically what eats my memory alive and why I have too have 16 Gigs of ram.

Reason and why, arguments will be reported if they are out of control.
