@Alex
Just trying to figure out, what is so special on your report. Can you please run a single instance of LAME from the command line and see how encoding times compare there?

edit:
OK, I can confirm Alex's observation: John's older vc6-intel compiled version is 20% faster on my Athlon64X2, than the newer ic11.1 one. Though, my own VC9-NASM compiles are equally fast, but 11% slower than John's IC11.1 one.

I created a consolidated wave file from the same 25 wave tracks that I used in the previous tests and tested the encoders in a cmd window.

Apparently my quad-core Phenom II doesn't produce very repeatable results when it is not fully stressed. When a single encoder runs in a cmd window the results vary greatly. I have the Asus E-PU 4-Engine "power saving engine" running. It was set to "High Performance" during the tests, but either it or the power features that are enabled in BIOS make the results rather unreliable.

For example, I could now have posted these results and made 3.99 look even slower than it is:
3.99: 21.624x
3.84: 32.890x

-- but after running several test runs I think the following results are quite correct (they are about average from all runs):

A bit surprisingly 3.99 creates quite a bit more LR frames than 3.98.4. Is this an intended change?

That's a consequence of PSY model corrections in 3.99, so yes, it's intended.
