So yeah, I benchmarked my PC with Mike Pan's BMW scene for 2.7x.... I got as follows:
GTX 770 Classified (GPU) - 1 minute and 53 seconds
Dual Xeon Octacore Hyper Threaded 2.6 Ghz Beasts (CPUs) - 1 minute and 28 seconds!!!
Holy smokes! This is insane, at least to me! I'd love to hear what kind of numbers you guys are getting! If it helps, my old PC got 34 minutes, and my old laptop...... TWO HOURS!
So thank you all for your support while I was here on Deviant Art. There was a long time period where this was the only place I got critique from, and since I bought a large portion of my parts with money from freelancing (a lot of the money also came from my parents), a lot of the skill I acquired to do those jobs were from here. That was hard to say.......
Anyhow, thanks and happy blending
