Thanks. In that case, on what architectures will IPP perform better? I am using a Core i7-2620M but the IPP color space conversion from RGB to NV12 is taking 50% of my cycles... :-(
Re the expiration date: please go to https://registrationcenter.intel.com -> My Products, select the product, and you will find when the support is expired for you product. You can manage and renew the product license on this page. It probably will require to enter a serial number for you product.

Thanks. Maybe my use of IPP color conversion is slow because I am using the single-threaded static link version. Is the underlying implementation of color conversion single- or multi-threaded?
