that you will go from 72.4 to 73.5 fps processing. you get worse performance when using just 4 threaded applications.
as for the game performance, odds are the game isnt using more than 2 cores so the gpu is definitely holding back your expectations.
if you look @ pass 2, the 6 core 1090t is roughly 27% faster than the 965.
pass 2 is the "real" encoding part.
pass 1 is goes through the whole video and calculates what bit rate/ quality to encode the video at.
pass 2 is where the actual encode/transcoding happens.
if you are encoding a 1080p, 4 hour long video like me.
it could be a difference of 11 hours or 8 hours.
