This is a split-screen head to head between Blender 2.49a and the new Blender 2.5 GsoC Viewport Optimisation (revision r22296) test build by developer imbusy.
I tried to show the massive view-port speedup that this build has given blender by zooming, rotating, transforming and scaling the object within the view-port.
You can grab the build over at graphicall.org/builds/builds/showbuild.php?action=show&id=1091
My current rig is the following:-
Vista Home Premium 64bit SP2
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ @ 2800 MHz
8GB DDR2 RAM (800mhz)
Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
