I am looking to upgrade my CPU and motherboard I am trying to decide between Intel Core i7 940 and i7-950 only real difference between the 2 is the i7-950 is a little faster but only by 130MHz
the i7 940 has a Nehalem core, and the i7 950 has a Bloomfield core.
Will one of the cores encode video faster than the other?
Right now I have a Phenom II X4 810
I really want to encode HD video faster, right now it takes like 6-12 hours to use BD-RB to compress a DL BD to a SL BD, and I am hearing about people compressing a movie in about 3 hours
Last night I compressed Star Trek to a 4GB MP4 but it took 8 hours using RipBot264 if I could get that down to about 3 hours that would be great
