Todd...do you have any insight into the degree of surprise that this may be causing on the team? I'm pretty shocked at how many people seem to be voting full on for speed!

It's what we expected, though a few folks are surprised by the magnitude of the imbalance in the responses---nigh unanimous as opposed to merely a clear majority.

[Todd Kopriva] "nigh unanimous as opposed to merely a clear majority"

How representative is the sample? What level/type of use and experience does it represent? What are their real expectations? Are they currently using workstations or basic laptops? What sort of cpu, disk, gpu and ram would be required for these proposed speed gains?

I'd be concerned that the poll is not an accurate representation of the market. I'm also concerned that the question is freighted to evoke a particular response. As a few have asked, what are the alternatives to more speed?

I'm rendering on a 12 core / 24 thread, 64GB machine, make MP work better and I'd be pleased but most of my renders are done in under 30 minutes, and many are done in 3 or 4 minutes. Speed isn't the only criteria I use to evaluate software. Stability, feature set, integration with other (and competing) applications, ease of use, cost, etc are factors that I would weigh before answering the question.

Don't worry, Brian. This post was intended to start a conversation, not to be the single source of data for a decision.

Thank you for opening this discussion, Adobe. I have shared my personal opinion on the matter.
