Due to a recent patch for 2.8 that improves performance for very many particles I was curious and I ran the following benchmark:
Here the file:
Blender_Particles_CPU_Benchmark_v1.0.zip (305.0 KB)
My times with i7-3770 @4.2GHz (Linux)
Blender 2.8 = 03:02.00
Blender 2.79b = 02:23.00
And I’ve noticed that 2.8 is being quite slower than 2.79b. I clarify that the slowness is not due to the mentioned patch, it does not influence in 2.8 times without or with patch for this benchmark that does not have very many particles actually.
So I make a kind of report here to see if anyone else has noticed this with other jobs.
