Blender 2.78b Brings 10x Cycles Speedups


The Cycles speedups that were announced last month are now available in a new official build! Some specific areas, like hair rendering, will see an performance boost of up to 10x!

This is a 2.78a release-compatible update with important speedups, especially in Cycles and for Dependency graph.

Most notable will be faster rendering of Motion blur with hair, which has a 5-10 time speedup – important for production rendering.
