iTunes is a free application for your Mac or PC. It organizes and plays your digital music and video on your computer. It keeps all your content in sync. And it’s a store on your computer, iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV that has everything you need to be entertained. Anywhere. Anytime.
In this benchmark we take a 640MB .WAV file and convert it to a 160kbp/s .mp3.
iTunes is not a heavily threaded app as you can see in the screen shot above. At most it uses two CPU cores for converting to mp3, so clock speed and an efficient architecture reigns supreme. Again we are surprised to see a very slight drop in conversion time with faster memory. The Corsair Vengeance 8GB at 1866MHz shows that it is a great compromise between all out performance and value ram.
