Intel Blender exe

Postby poutsa » Thu Feb 05, 2004 7:42 pm

Could Blender get even faster? Yes! The user An][ares compiled the 2.32 source code with the Intel compiler and we can expect a 100% speed boost in render times. Works under Pentium and Athlon processors. Unzip and put the .exe in the same folder as Blender 2.32.

wow - i can confirm a more then 100% speed boost. it was a quick and dirty test, but regular blender took apx 43sec to render a frame while this recompiled version did it in 18(!) seconds. this sounds too good to be true. any more benchmarks?

well, afaik, it is indeed quicker, but not about 100% at my testimage.
it was a little scene with mirroring and refracting glass spheres.

in normal blender it took about 32 seconds
in intelcompiled blender only 25 seconds

it is not a 100% speed up, but in every case when animating complex scenes these few seconds will become minutes or even hours (in my scene @25fps: 7sec/frame --> about 2.9 hours/minute).

padrino, a 30 second render will not be reduced as much as a 15 min render.

i ahve gotten 15 min renders down to 5 mins with the intel compile. i have been using it since the first version he released and i won't use blender unless it has been optimised now.

i am hoping that yafray can be compiled with it, but he was having difficulty.
