The thing is that audio users are demanding a lot smaller buffer sizes than years ago, along with higher and higher tracks counts coupled with DFD streaming of enormous sample libraries. I'd be amazed if there wasn't a significant decrease in peak performance in some circumstances.

I see from Intel's testing that things aren't clear cut - even as clear cut as their conclusion from limited testing here...

Re the single core thing performance drop, I instantly thought of Kontakt or *shudder* Play there. With the other cores and cache already being taken up with other, non-encryption duties - unlike their testing.
