Sorry for crossposting this. I intended to post in the LW - Mac forum.

I finally got my dual G5 and I took it out of the box, installed Lightwave 7.5, and ran a couple of renders. Thought someone might be interested.

Skull_Head_Newest.lws:
170.2 seconds - 1 thread, 8MB segment
108.1 seconds - 4 threads, 8MB segment
94.7 seconds - 4 threads, 500MB segment

This absolutely smokes my previous machine (as expected). My dual 533 G4 took more than 3 times that long!
