Pov Ray Rendering

For this test we are using the latest beta version of POV-Ray 3.7 that includes native multithreading and 64 bit support. Some of the beta 64bit versions have been slightly slower than the final 3.6 release, however as we are using the exact same version across the board the results are still applicable.

Sometimes these figures are hard to get into perspective however the 28 seconds taken to complete the Chess2.pov is lightning quick. For reference, this used to take around 10 minutes on a Pentium 4 1.5ghz machine many years ago!
