robcat2075 Posted December 3, 2009 Share Posted December 3, 2009 It would be useful to find out how various CPUs do with A:M, for those who are considering new machines. This PRJ is designed to test the major render time hits like reflection, refraction, multiple ray-traced lights, shadows, anti-aliasing and combiner materials without touching on disk and RAM hogs like bitmaps or hair. Please download this PRJ ThreeTeapotsBenchmarkv005.prj select the camera view in the chor. If you are testing v16 or later, load this render preset when you render to file. benchmark.pre If you are testing v13-15 set your Options>Render Settings to "use settings from Camera" before you render to file. The PRJ has every possible render parameter set in the chor camera. In either case you will need to set a file path. Then hit render and wait. You should get a small jpg (320x240) exactly like this in your "My Documents" folder (Mac Users may have to select a new location): Report your: version of A:M (see Help>About A:M) render time min:sec CPU Brand and model Actual CPU speed in GHz how many cores A:M is using RAM OS mine was: 15h 19:59 AMD Athlon XP 3200 1.921 GHz 1 core 2 GB RAM Windows 2000 Thank you!
