    Geekbench 2.2.3 (64-bit) Scores
    2011 Mac mini 2.3GHz Dual-Core Intel i5 8GB 1333 PNY Memory
    Windows 7 64-bit: 6573 (Running as VM under VMWare Fusion 4.0 with 1 proc/2gb memory assigned to VM)

    As a comparison, I have a MacPro1.1 2x Dual Core 2.66 Xeon w/16gb Mem that clocks in at 6600 on the Geekbench score.

    FWIW, Intel Quick Sync decode/encode nets me 85fps 1080p h.264 MP4 conversion. This is nice boost over handbrake. The quality was also fine at last. However, Handbrake encodes both 2 ch. AAC and 5.1 plus anamorphic in the Apple TV 2 preset. DVDfab has some work on their presets.
