ripping comes from ripping off, i.e. cheating. With CD's that can only mean making unlicensed copes = Raubkopien.

erhebliche Leistungsverbesserung beim Rippen [Transfer] von CD-Daten

You might also use a phrase like "signifikante Verbesserung in der Performanz / Performance beim Rippen / Transfer / Kopieren ... "

I would definitely not go so far as to use "Raubkopieren" (as was suggested) - while it certainly may apply, using that phrase in praising a processor's performance would be tantamount to suborning a practice that is most certainly frowned upon by the software / music industries.

Ripping - German: "rippen" is transferring or copying data. It is often used to describe the extraction of sound data. See the following:

Das Wichtigste bei der Erstellung von MP3-Dateien ist, den Computer nicht mit anderen Programmen zu belasten, da es sich beim sogenannten Rippen (von engl.: to rip = entreissen) um einen sehr rechenintensiven Prozess handelt. Beim Rippen ist ferner zu beachten, dass die Qualität und Grösse der MP3-Datei individuell den Bedürfnissen des Benutzers angepasst weden kann. Grundsätzlich gilt: Je besser die Qualität, d.h. je höher die Werte, desto grösser wird auch die Datei.

Audio Catalayst 2.0
Wenn man auf der Suche nach einem Hardcore-CD-Ripper ist, ist AudioCatalyst die richtige Wahl. Audio-CD rein, ein paar Buttons drücken und im Nu hat man die Stücke der CD als fertig benannte MP3-Dateien auf der eigenen Hardidsk. Die Demoversion erlaubt nur die Kompressionsrate 128 kbps und ist leider nicht fähig, jeweils die ganze CD zu kopieren.

to rip = sounddaten von CD im PCM Format

CD Ripping with SoundHack
Using the SoundHack program, you can transfer (or ``rip'') audio from a CD to the hard disk. This is a digital transfer - there is no conversion between analog and digital domains.
1. Launch SoundHack. There should be an icon for it at the bottom of the screen.

Copying (ripping) CD tracks to play using the Windows Media Player. ...

Rippers : A ripper is a program that allows you to break this encryption and "rip" out the files from the DVD, without it being turned into garbage data. Basically, it allows you to copy files from the DVD to your hard-drive successfully. This is not to be confused with CD ripping, which is the ripping of digital data off the audio CD - DVD ripping is really just DVD copying (to the hard-drive). Note that DVDs, unlike audio CDs, do not have a special "audio track" - the audio information is stored in a VOB file (see below) and are much like other digital video formats (eg. avi,mpg,rm).
