Last I remember testing, it was faster on almost all CPUs except the
most recent Intel ones (where SSE is so fast that CoreAVC's lack of
SSE becomes rather painful).

The interesting thing is that CoreAVC is actually surprisingly similar
to ffh264 in terms of performance features--I am still not entirely
sure why it is at all faster.  It may simply be less overhead due to
better organization, or perhaps its prefetching and better cache
