[FFmpeg-user] libx265 a lot slower

I heard a lot that you should libx265 instead of libx264. I did not,
because at some places that went wrong. (I think uploading. But it is
several years ago, so I am not sure.)
I am again playing with ffmpeg and creating new scripts.
When using libx265 the file size is about a third smaller, but it
takes about 2.5 to 3 times longer to generate the file. Is this
normal, or a quirk at my side?
For the moment I stay with libx264.
