I just ran a benchmark on the new version and the old version:

Old version is on the left (v4.11 64-bit) New version is on the right (v4.20 B2 64-bit)

This is really really impressive. The amount of CPU usage on my Core i7 3930K (6 Core / 12 Threads) is atleast 4-5x higher than on the old version and well the benchmark results speak for themselves.
