I have been testing with Maya fluid to rendered as Particles.
there is a fluid container with 60 resolution and
importantly, nparticles emission rate is 50000 particles/second,
the render time for this 160 frame simulation with Maya Software render took around 10 minutes.
my hardware is core i7 -950,
ati 5770,
12 gb ram.
ask freely how I get this effect at my mail vishwakarma.vishwa@gmail.com
thanx :)
