Hi all,
Just ordered a Dual Xeon 2.4GHZ / 1Ghz Ram / GForce4Ti4600 128.
I wanted to know if some of you know how it compare toward a dual Athlon 2000Mp or so.
The seller told me I could expect around 30% faster, what do you guys think ?

Nice Machine! =)
I run a dual AMD clocked at 2000 myself... and I would figure that that 30% faster to be about right on. -- It definately will be much faster then the dual AMD... (which is very fast) since the Xeon has the crazy on cache on the die that is huge. -- *AND* it has hyperthreading on the chip too.... (now seen on the latest P4's).. so as far as seperate threads.... your OS may show that you have 4 processors. --Plus Lightwave is optimized like crazy for the SSE2 instruction set of the latests Pentiums. I'd definately run Lightwave at 8 Threads when you get it set up! --- I'm really curious about the render times myself... when you get it set up... post benchmarks on the rendertimes of the scenes in the benchmark directory of LW and I'll post what I come up with with my Dual AMD. =)
