H.264 at an average of 57.10 fps? Only about half of real time? Real impressive... at those settings I gotta git me a Q-core myself then... :D

Funny. My D-core was the fastest thing in the world just about less than a year ago... :cry:

You won't see all 4 cores utilized unless your using H.264 and are not using de-interlacing.

Just got an HP with the Q6700 (2.66GHz, 8meg L2)

PS3 preset I get between 95-127fps.

Its pretty amazing. iPod / PSP presets as h.264 are in the low 300 fps.

Nice work optimizing to the developers of HandBrake and x.264

All 4 cores are Pegged during the transcode.

I'm using a Q6600, 2GB RAM, Vista 64 and the PS3 preset with no changes. I hit 99% on all 4 cores, but I only get an average fps of 45. Is there something I can modify to get a higher fps? I'd rather not experiment with overclocking.

Mac OS X 10.5.6 on GA-EP45-DS3R motherboard with Q6600 2.4GHz stock processor and 2GB RAM (RAM is probably irrelevant to my results)
Handbrake 0.9.3 using Apple Universal Preset
DVD: Charlie Wilson's War straight off the DVD

Speed: ~39 fps with all cores consistently over 95%. I did some e-mail and web browsing while it was encoding, so it wasn't fully optimal, but probably pretty close.

Windows Vista 32-bit on GA-P35-DS3L motherboard with Q6600@2.4 and 4GB OCZ Reaper RAM (1066).
Handbrake 0.9.3 using High Profile Film Preset
DVD: Planet Earth - Blu-ray

Speed: ~7 fps with all cores consistently over 95%. PC was generally left to encode.

Edit: Just realized that my ram is currently OC'd (1066) but my cpu is currently at 2.4 (not the 3.2 I originally listed).
I must have bumped it back down for some reason. I may bump it back up and see how that impacts encode times.
I know I can easily get it back up to 3.0.
