Apple iTunes inexplicably favors the EX58-UD3R. If not for BIOS oddities we’d expect all of today’s samples to encode our soundtrack in one minute, eleven seconds.
With a three-way tie at the top of Lame encoding, Gigabyte mysteriously falls almost to the bottom. It should be apparent by now that Jetway’s BI-600 doesn’t support Intel Turbo mode, a technology that increases CPU multiplier by one (multi-core operations) or two (single-core operations) speed bins under high CPU load.
Gigabyte again finds the top position in TMPGEnc.
ASRock and Asus match Gigabyte in MainConcept H.264 encoding.
