I’ve been “out of it” for a couple months and now i just dove back in by installing 2.65a. I looked for a MinGW build and couldn’t find one, so I’m wondering if the “standard” build is now the fastest build, or do I have to start begging for a MinGW build (Windows 7 64-bit).
If MinGW is still majorly faster (which it definitely is in 2.63) why is not the preferred compiling method? It’s always baffled me that cycles was so hugely crippled on standard builds but MinGW release builds are so hard to come by.
Sorry is this is common knowledge, I’m just hoping someone knows the defintive answers so I don’t have to spend a couple of hours testing rendering speeds and hunting for builds to find out for myself.
