I use tmpgenc xpress. It does use all 6 cores, but I'm not sure if it actively calculates on all cores or if the program is just passing load between.


For the price, the 2600k is a great deal. I'm sure it will kill the 1090... and when the 1090 came out, it was $300 too. Intel, for the power, seems to be a way better product.
