LAME MT MP3 Encoding

This custom test uses the LAME MT engine to benchmark encoding a 650 MB WAV file into a standard 128 kbps MP3 file.  We used the Microsoft compiler for the most fair results.

More impressive results from Intel’s new architecture!!  In our own WinRAR test, the X6800 beats the FX-62 by 40%!  In the multi-threaded LAME tests, the lead is 39%! WorldBench’s results show a 26% gain in WinZip and a 17% gain in MusicMatch.  Intel is clearly dominating in these areas.
