Has anybody tried?
It would be interesting to hear real reviews.
Here are the 4 and 6 core test results release today 11April17.

If your are referring to VRD testing then I too am waiting for that to happen.
Particularly X264 vs H264 testing.

X264 is more then twice as fast as H264. (Intel 6 core 3930 @ 4.3 Ghz)
Even limiting my cpu(3930) to 4 cores, X264 vs H264 is much faster then other 4 cores listed here.

The 12 Meg cache may be the "magic sauce". Wish I knew.
AMD's Ryzen has a 16 Meg cache.
