Adobe Media Encoder CC 2018 can finally utilize all cores at 100% - giving my XEON a good workout.

Just updated my Creative Suite to the latest 2018 version that was released in the past 48 hours. Fired up adobe media encoder 2018 CC and proceed to convert one 2 Min 4K Clip shot by my camera into 4K H.265 format. Surprisingly, it is fully utilizing all 18 cores in the Xeon but its still a very intensive task, taking almost 1.5 hours to complete the render. Once my Dual 2696V4 system gets online, I will repeat the same test and hopefully see additional improvements:

You can't really tell if it's using all 18 cores by that graph. If you right click on the graph in task manager, you will see an option to change graph to "Logical processors." That will show a more accurate breakdown as far as CPU usage goes, than the overall utilization graph in that picture.

I did that as well and each logical processor shows 95 ~ 100% load :)
