Making use of Sandy Bridge's encoding

I'm running a 2600k now and I'd like to be able to encode a bunch of MST3k episodes for my ipod very quickly. I know the Sandy Bridge chips have a special functionality that makes them extra fast encoders, but I believe I read that only a few programs can take advantage of that feature. I usually use Handbrake for PC, will this make use of the super speed my chip offers, or do I have to use another program?

  1. Currently Intel’s Quick Sync transcode is only supported by two applications: Cyberlink’s Media Espresso 6 and Arcsoft’s Media Converter 7. Both of these applications are video to go applications targeted at users who want to take high resolution/high bitrate content and transcode it to more compact formats for use on smartphones, tablets, media streamers and gaming consoles.

    Well that's what I want to do. Any recommendation on which to use?
