Windows vs Mac performance, Adobe Media Encoder CC 2017

I've survived the first couple months of transition from a Mac-based workstation to a Windows-based one (still using a MacBook Pro as my main "life" computer, though). The NVIDIA GPU has been required for a lot of the work I'm doing in 360 and VR. The new machine features an overclocked 10-core i7 CPU and Titan X GPU, so it's very fast. But I was not so happy to see Adobe Media Encoder CC 2017 only using from 50-75% of my CPU. I seem to remember that AME used a higher % of available CPU resources on the Mac, but haven't done direct comparisons.
