Ripping speed
Authored by: marmoset on Dec 18, '01 04:00:51PM

IIRC, the x86 versions of LAME use inline hand-coded assembly
in some performance-critical sections, LAME for other CPU
architectures falls back on routines written in C.
Unless someone goes through and does an equivalent
amount of optimization for the PPC version, using LAME
to compare the platforms' speed is not going to be a fair
fight.
