I have both a AMD Athlon 2400+ (2.0), and a AMD Athlon64 3200+ (2.0), and from my own experiences, rendering is faster here on my 64bit machines, especially in raytracing. Thanks! Can you throw out just a rough percentage figure for the improvement (or if you want to be more precise, that's fine, t...

I know this has been asked before, but I haven't found a straight answer yet: Do the 64-bit builds give significant performance gains compared to 32-bit builds (e.g., rendering times, etc.)? If so, roughly how big are the gains you're seeing? I guess a test between 64- and 32-bit builds on the same ...

This was one of the big "non-standard" things about Blender that had me puzzled when I first started. I've never seen another app on Windows or Linux that has a click/drag on a button to change a value. It may help the newbies who just want to jump in and play with stuff (it would have helped me).
