CPU rendering is dead
show user profile  nemo
check out the video and the press release:
http://www.chaosgroup.com/en/2/news.html?i=126#newsid126

dont know if this has been previously posted, the search didnt really work for me.

anyway, chaos group implemented a cuda based gpu rendering solution that will give you up to 100 times the rendering speed of current quad core systems.

and now they are working on an opencl solution, which is even greater.

adios cpu rendering

cheers
