Apple iTunes and Lame MP3 encoding performance varies by less than the 60% clock speed difference between Eurocom’s desktop and MSI’s mobile processors. That’s good news for the per-clock efficiency of the mobile part, even though the desktop part has far greater performance.
TMPGEnc favors the D900F’s desktop processor by over 80%. The larger performance difference could be due to architectural differences such as the on-die memory controller.
Eurocom’s 135% performance advantage in MainConcept can’t be so easily attributed to architectural differences, though Hyper-Threading on the Core i7 could be a contributing factor.
