Apple iTunes appears to favor Asus’ slightly higher-than-standard base clock, though it doesn’t give MSI the same advantage.
ASRock’s X58 SuperComputer was last in iTunes but tied for first in Lame MP3 encoding. This could be a Turbo mode issue, with single-threaded application using the 22x single-core maximum multiplier on some boards and the 21x multi-core limit of others.
Asus again finds the lead in video encoding, with surprising results in TMPGenc.
