Ok, I’ve installed 2.68a on ubuntu linux 13.04
I wish I hadnt though, linux is offering absolutely no performance boost to rendering at all. In face, 2.68a renders SLOWER than 2.66.
In 2.66 my scene rendered in 5m 22sec
In 2.68a my scene rendered in 5m 40sec.
What I have noticed though, is while Linux spends pretty much a minue on pre and post drawing calculations. Windows spends a lot longer on that part, BUT during the actual drawing phase of the render, windows renders significantly faster.
Linux starts “drawing” at 1m 40sec, about 2 seconds post-draw time.
windows starts drawing at 2m 39sec and has about 25 sec post drawing time.
Does anyone have any tips? Part of the reason I spent two days installing linux is because most websites said there was at least some performance boost to be had. But I’m getting pretty much nothing.
Windows render time: 5m 31s.
