Comparing x86 to x64.

    In comparing encoding times with x86 and x64 were performed on a AMD 3200+
    32-bit machine and a FX51 64-but machine which indicated a 28% reduction in
    overall time. This was actually comparing apples and oranges.

    The latest results were performed on an AMD 4400x2 dual boot system with the
    same programs installed on each operating systems, data files stored in a
    separate partition.

    The first test was to convert a 7.26G DVD movie to a 714MB file using
    FairUse Wizard v2.1a, haven't tested v2.4 yet. Time and temperatures were
    the same, CPU usage was 5% less with x64 and PF was 80MB higher with x64.

    The second test was capturing a 40 minute VCR clip using a Leadtek TV2000 XP
    expert card with CyberLink Power Director 5 and creating a DVD of the clip.
    Time and temperatures were the same, didn't record CPU or PF data.

    FairUse Wizard and Power Director 5 are 32-bit programs, drivers for the
    Leadtek TV2000 XP expert were the latest x86 drivers and the latest x64 beta
    drivers.

    With the performance being the same on x86 & x64 for 32-bit programs is an
    indication that the emulation being performed doesn't slow the programs
    function. A performance increase should be noted when 64-bit programs are
    available.

    Why is there an x86 emu if a processor is x86-64?
