By popular demand, here is a file that can be used to gauge the relative performance of different computers:

 

ftp://ftp.formz.com/pub/formz/formz/fz8/Forum_Files/Performance%20Test%20files.zip

 

Download the archive above, unzip it, open your formZ Application folder, and run the formZ Imager application.

 

Click the Add button at the lower left corner of the Imager Set, select the .FMZ file, and add the Interior View.

 

Change the Rendering Type to RenderZone, and click Generate.  When the rendering finishes, double click on the Complete Status, and the render time will be displayed.  Post this time, along with the OS, processor, and speed of the processor.  We will tabulate the results in the following post.

 

EDIT 1 -- Please post your statistics just as we have below so we can copy and paste from your postings into the Results thread...

​EDIT 2 -- We will assume that you are testing with formZ v8 (which is somewhat faster than older versions) unless you specify otherwise…

                (A v7 file was added to the download folder.)

EDIT 3 -- Please only post your results in this thread.  If you have any comments, please post them here:

                http://forums.formz....-test-comments/

EDIT 4 -- Comments posted to this thread will be deleted.  Please post to the thread immediately above if you want a response.

Hi Arkona,

 
Welcome to the forum!  We are surprised that your results above show formZ v7 being faster than v8 (our test show v8 is generally faster).  Are you sure that you ran the exact same test in both versions, and that you were not utilizing the processor when formZ 8 was rendering?
 
(This forum thread should be reserved for results only, so please post your answer in the Comments thread here:
