H.264 Encoding And Multiple Cpu Cores


Does Popcorn take advantage of all processor cores available? The product info pages don't seem to say anything about multiple cores.


I'm currently running a Core 2 Duo Macbook but am in the market for a new Mac Pro. Will Popcorn use all eight cores for H.264 encoding? With turbo.264 I'm getting about 1:1 encoding time vs play time on Apple TV high settings. If I can boost that significantly with more/faster cores I may splurge for a bigger/badder Mac Pro.
