We've posted the results of some detailed testing of QuickDraw 3D rendering performance, comparing the speed of QD3D software rendering with three accelerator boards, running QD3D 1.5.3 with DesignWorkshop 1.7.
Over the range of models and rendering engines tested so far, the rendering times range from 0.45 seconds on the slow side, to 0.033 seconds (30 frames per second) on the fast side.
