[Bf-cycles] Collecting official benchmark results

Just tested it under linux, same sort of GPU Utilization happens....
rendering via python / command line is approximately 10% quicker then
pressing f12.

I used the command watch -n0.1 "nvidia-settings -q GPUUtilization" to
measure the current GPU usage. Same spikes occur.

> Non dedicated card... I just tested on one of our GTX590s (dual gpu on one card) just rendering off one of the cards and it is the same (tried both cards individually). GPU usage bounces all over the place but when running it through bpy.ops.render.render() or via command line it is 100% consistently.
> These machines do not have a monitor attached as they are headless nodes... accessing via VNC. Same results as on our artists workstations.
> I can provide further testing later today if needed (two GPUs in one machine, one fully dedicated CUDA card)
