You may recall an article last November about Blender being used for the Intel Core I7 rollout.
Now there is some benchmarking by Intel using Blender 2.47
From the Intel site: "Blender* workload consists of a ~6.9 MB character model of a flying squirrel."
(The flying squirrel better watch out for Boris and Natasha lurking around. ;-)Â )
Go to the Intel site and click on " Create cool 3D images for animations and games" to see the graph.
