CCE encoding speed - vs. Transcoders

Ok, I’ve done a lot reading about transcoders, vs encoders. I understand that TMPenc is very slow as an encoder vs. the transcoders out there, but I also understand that CCE is supposedly a lot faster than TMPenc. My question is how much faster? Is it comparable to the transcoders, or is it still WAY slower than the transcoders? Thanks.

For me, 2.4 Ghz P4, I can complete a backup with shrink in under 1hr start to finish (with deep analysis). With CCE-Basic (2 pass VBR) and DVD-RB, about 3 hr. But for highly compressed discs, there is no comparision in quality. CCE wins hands down.
