Interesting talk regarding multiprocessors, etc. Brings up another question... do you have any benchmark test results to share with us?
I will be upgrading in the future, and I would love to see "real" benchmark data to help me decide which system to go with.
If you don't have any, could I suggest that you select one or more desgins, set some benchmark tests (i.e. time to switch between 2 views in wire frame, shaded, light & texture and time to render specific views). If you set up the model, I would imagine that many of us would be willing to download, run the tests (stand alone), and report results along with our system specs (mem, MHZ, PC/mac, etc).
THis would be just a rough set of data, but significant differences would be of great interest.
