    I understand that OSX uses Intel QuickSync for FaceTime and Airplay Mirroring.

    I have extensively looked for some way to re-encode video very quickly to justify getting an Ivy Bridge iMac. Some 3rd party software that does it via QuickSync...?

    Please can somebody explain why re-encoding video doesn't use this technology on OSX?
    Why are there no 3rd Party re-encoders which use it?

    I found this on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBIarn0mQW0

    a person showing off the Ivy Bridge MacBook Air's capabilities with re-encoding.
    He is running Windows 7 and 3rd party software.
    It's kind of ridiculous.

    Does anyone know - thanks in anticipation -
    I gotsta know!
