I just downloaded the demo version and tried it because the 5 minute time given on that post sounded suspiciously low... The program is very poorly multithreaded. On my computer (similar to that of the post, i7 980 + 24GB), it mostly was using around 8% processor, which works out to it being single-thread only (1 "hyperthread" utilized out of 12) Every once in a while it would jump up to about 30% for a fraction of a second, then go back down. Kind of sad for imaging processing software as it is one of the few tasks that is actually easy to parallelize. It actually did a good job on some random handheld auto-bracketed shots too... too bad it would be painfully slow to use. They should really get on fixing that.
