Intel SDK Performance

Hi,

  I want to do decoding performance comparisons between the MSDK and ffmpeg. 

Has anyone done this sort of thing? 

My very initial tests, using sample_decode from MSDK demo project vs. the ffmpeg demuxing or filtering_video sample projects show that for a single streaming HD video, MSDK is between 3-6 times slower than the ffmpeg.
I know that these are slightly different implementations - I haven't combined ffmpeg decoding directly into an MSDK project yet, but this seems very strange.

Has anyone seen similar behavior?

Thanks,
Adi
