On my 128 MB Ram dual PII266, it was 120s on single thread and 94s on two
threads. The scene was all set to original installation settings.

well, I gave the segment memory about 64MB to render. Was I supposed to do
this? Does is slow everything down or speed it up?

Anything over 10 megs on that scene wont make a difference really as that
much memory is enough to bring the render segments down to 1 segment(check
the Camera panel near the memory allocation)

i just rendered the same frame on my humble P133 with 48 mb ram, it took
to render.
i'm looking at getting a PII 300-400 soon, can anybody give us an idea of
improved rendering performance on those machines.
thanks in advance,

This scene file actually has been out in two different configurations. One
was a render at 640x480 with low anitaliasing/field rendering and motion
blur and letterboxed. The other was identical but was at 320x240 res.
instead. Which one are you people benchmarking with? the 640 or the 320
resolution?

I'm wondering why you're benchmarking with this scene rather than something
from the BENCHMARK folder? That's why they're there, and there's a big
searchable archive of results from these at
http://pluto.njcc.com/~chrisb/Benchmark/

Please do not assume that everyone has the same settings for this scene! I
know for a fact that there are TWO different factory settings that have
been released by NewTek.

Please post the exact camera resolution and rendering settings so that we
can be sure that we are all on the same page.

Thanks

just out of curiosity, i rendered frame 100 from blade.lws in 7 seconds on an i7 16gig system. its neat to see how far things have progressed since the "good old days"
