Machine Speed Questions

Hi,

I've been using Radiance on and off for about 7 years on a variety of
platforms. I am getting going again after a bit of a hiatus and was
interested in what machines are currently thought of as providing the
fastest rendering times. I have Radiance running on OSX and Linux
boxes, but they are older G3 and Xeon 500 cpus. Anyone have any
thoughts?

Thanks,

Robert Westling

Robert-

Have a peek at these urls:

http://astronomy.swin.edu.au/~pbourke/radiance/benchrad/

http://mark.technolope.org/pages/rad_bench.html

The latter (which is based on the former's tests) has
some timings for the latest hardware, including
Powerbooks (G4) running OSX. Interesting reading.
