We're looking to upgrade the benchmark section of the NeXT software archives. If you know of any NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP compatible benchmarks that we don't have, or newer versions of ones that we do have, please post a link to the files.
I ran Povray on my 33Mhz Turbo Colorstation a while back and it took just under an hour to render the standard skyvase benchmark (http://www.haveland.com/index.htm?povbench/index.php).
As a comparison.. POV3 skyvase benchmark on:
OS4.2 in VMware for os X. vitrual machine has 256 meg, 4 gig hdd
completed in 16 seconds.
Host machine is a mac mini, core 2 1.8Ghz 2 gig ram.
16 seconds is pretty zippy. Just a tad faster than Black Hardware. :)
