First impressions... Well, it's an awful lot faster than v9, especially at radiosity (holy batcrap it's fast -- at least 10x faster than v9, seems like, possibly more -- with what seems like less obvious visual artifacts to boot). Which would be great if it would at least think about using more than one core when calculating anything else -- it rendered the new version of Game just a couple minutes slower -- while using approximately 25% of the processing power. WTF. It's so much worse than v9 at CPU utilization that it's not even funny -- it probably averages a core and a half, when v9 at least averaged five out of eight (which is already pretty embarrassing for a rendering engine).
