[Bf-committers] Performance improvements and compilers

Hi there,

I just ran a comparative test render with cycles on two different builds of blender r56315.
One compiled with VC 2008 and one compiled with VC 2012.

Simple scene with a high detail character

VC 2008: 18 Minutes 33 seconds
VC 2012: 16 Minutes 06 seconds

All on CPU, no CUDA yet.
I'd really like a benchmark for blender in order to compare physics, rendering and other features. Is there any?

By the way, the builds are both x64, the vs 2012 build was done with /arch:AVX and GHOST SDL instead of GHOST Win32 because of the odd crashing issue on Win 8.

Both builds and the prerequisite libs can be downloaded at my site: http://shadowrom.de

Best regards
