Performance scaling on multiprocessor machines.

(1/2) > >>

Ludvik Koutny:
Hello,

if some of you have ever used multiprocessor machines (for example dual Xeon workstations) with Corona, you might have noticed that performance on such machines does not scale very well.

I am happy to announce that Keymaster has fixed this issue and Corona performance now scales properly on multiprocessor machines.

For example, Dual Xeon E5-2630 i use at work is now little over twice the speed of Core i7 2600k.

The fix is available in latest nightly build :)

DeadClown:
what the... O_O didn't know this issue existed. Now I'm very curious how rendering speed on my machine will improve. I love news like that ;)

Sam75:
Rawalanche can you explain the difference between legacy and non legacy night builds ?

Legacy builds support old processors with old instruction sets, such as Core 2 Quad at the cost of being slower.

Thank you.
