Speed and memory conservation. Newer graphics cards like the ATI X800 have hardware normal map compression. Its also a lot faster to apply skeletal deformation to a 1,500 poly game model then apply a normal map to make it look like 100,000 polys than the other way around. Takes a lot of load off the CPU.

Cool, just got word that the upgrade price from 9.1 Studio Bundle to 9.5 Studio bundle is $295. In the US anyway.

Quote: I can't say, what the price will be in MAXON UK or MAXON USA, but MAXON Germany plans to sell the upgrade from R9 to R9.5
- for 171,552 Euro (excl. VAT) if you don't have the module Advanced Render
- for 257,769 Euro (excl. VAT) if you have the module Advanced Render

Then we will offer 3 special upgrades:
- from R7 XL to R9.5 incl. Advanced Render 2.5 for 688,793 Euro (excl. VAT)
- from R8.x to R9.5 incl. Advanced Render 2.5 for 602,586 Euro (excl. VAT)
- from R9 to R9.5 incl. Advanced Render 2.5 for 473,276 Euro (excl. VAT)

The update of BodyPaint 3D R2 stand-alone to BP 3D R2.5 stand-alone will cost 85,345 (excl. VAT).

For other prices, please contact MAXON directly via email/phone.

I would like to add that these prices are preliminary until they are published in the MAXON shop.

From the "ask your 9.5 questions here" thread, which was started by a Maxon employee.

I agree, not too bad. For the baking features alone I would pay that, the other improvements are bonus for me.
