as i succesfully managed to run blender 2.45 on my (x)ubuntu 7.10 (originally ubuntu, but i installed xfce environment), i have a question about blender’s perfromance
this setup is on my notebook. specs are: intel celeron M 440 (1.86GHz), 512MB RAM, intel gma 950 (others are not necessary).
when i run new instance of blender and run benchmark (draw), the result is 883 iterations. when working with 4 viewports, and in 3 of them is a blueprint of size mostly 1024x1024 or 1536x1536, the draw benchmark score is usually 120 iterations.
now i want to ask 2 things:
- how to improve performance without making any HW changes?
- if i buy another 512mb module of RAM and put it to dual-channel, will it result in noticeable performance boost?
thank you in advance
