  • Download(s):
  • 1pass VBR bugs fixed

  • Also there's a special version included which doesn't use CPU dispatching which runs 2-3 % faster on my Intel Q9450.
    Any CPU which can do SSSE3 will run it, it might also speed up AMD systems, Intel compiler options: /O3 /Og /QaxT /QxT (There are rumours CPU dispatching by Intel compilers doesn't do that well on AMD ).
    I don't have an AMD system at home or at work so I can't test it.
