Everyone here is assuming that Ae is using the GPU to render this scene. It is not. The classic 3D renderer is CPU ONLY.

It doesn't matter that the GPU is integrated Intel hardware. Ae isn't even trying to use it to render the scene. The GPU has nothing to do with it. You could install seventeen brand new NVIDIA GTX 1080 cards and it wouldn't make a difference to the features or time of this preview/render.

Check out the difference between Fast Draft and Final Quality:
