I saw a benchmark on Phoronix regarding FLAC performance:

So I became curious about it on Windows. The results? A bit disappointing, only about 3-5% increase in performance, probably because of the lack of _asm on x64. If the x86 build is compiled without using NASM, it gets about 10% slower. At least on my AMD Fusion A6-3500. Either way, here it is for your convenience!

  1. Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64)
  2. FLAC 1.2.1 x64

I also did some testing with an ICL 12.1 x64 compile and came to much the same conclusion. I can make it available if anyone is interested, but the gains aren't worth shouting about.

My compiles and utilities are at http://www.rarewares.org/

I'd like to test your compile John, is it possible to make it available on RW (I found there your ICL 11.1 32 bit compile) or send it directly here? Is it optimized for any kind of processor instruction set (SSE2, SSE3...), or otherwise how can I get info on how to do it (I run an Intel Core 2 Duo)? I'll give a try at forart.eu and lamedude method (thanks for the link to the tutorial)

Same question than lamedude: is there any community preferred tool for measuring flac encoding/decoding speed, or we should just use CLI/foobar's log info?

Many thanks.

Reasons for edit: typos and grammar
