    I'm not familar with the lingo and the techie stuff when it comes to encoding video but I encoded the movie "The Departed" and it only took about 40 min! I used the preset for the iphone 4 and the average fps was about 105. On my old turion 2.1 processor encoding was completely UNBEARABLE! Which is why I didn't do it much. Has anyone tried encoding on the 2.2 or 2.3 quad i7 yet?

    I haven't done benchmarks, but a 1 1/2 hour movie on my iMac took about 50 minutes. A 2 1/2 hour movie on my i7 took 30 minutes. Very impressive.

    The length of the movie is a bad indicator. The file size, bitrate and format are what matters.

    These quad cores are beasts when it comes to encoding though.

    True, but I encoded both the same way. Not meant as a benchmark, just an indicator that it is fast! :)

    According to iStat, the CPU never went above 86C. The case was not bad except for the both back center which was very warm. Overall cooler than the MBP from two generations ago.
