I'm seeing similar speeds using nuvexport to transcode to avi on my
amd 2800+. It's two years old, but in all other respects it's a really
fast machine. I have denoise switched off (to work around a buggy
yuvdenoise mentioned in other threads), but otherwise just use the
defaults. I assumed that there was nothing I could do to speed it up,
but if anyone has any suggestions I'd be interested in reading them.
