Hi Zacchia

i am not sure how you are measuring this .... are you calculating render passes for a given time ?
if so, this does not always reflect the right situation with unbiased rendering like TR1 and TR2 because 1 pass can have more "quality" then before.

the best way to compare unbiased renders is how much noise is after a given time .... and you will see the speed increase with heavy and difficult scenes much more (longer renders)

for BSD it will depend much more on the scene and scene setup as we have now tracing depth per material which has a big impact on render times :)

Is it possible to send me a sample scene? I would like to "measure" it also here (with another computer that is). I have no doubt about your measuring and my belief is that in this scene latest revision is only 25% faster, like in your tests. All I am saying is that thea speed up depends on the scene and it is more obvious on unbiased TR1/TR2. And indeed, you won't see always half times; on average you will see something like 35% reduced times (if I recall correctly).

I did a lot of testing when the speed up was first done and the results showed a massive difference, even 32bit machines can handle more than double the amount of instances and still render, build time is mega quick.
You may say I'm bias as a beta tester but the speed up changes are very evident for me

This is the scene I made the test: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/38782963/Scene.pack.thea
This is the BSD Preset: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/38782963/12.%20 ... ryHigh.xml
This are the results:

The TR1 renders have been limited to 10 passes

I have seen now that I made with the TR1 comparison a simple mistake: The seconds are not 1745/1589 they are 745/589 :crazy: That means the speed up is the same with TR1 and BSD, about 80/100% or 100/123%. Sorry for this!!
