My point was people getting hung up over a 200MHz increase in clock speed in an age when processors run at 15 times that speed.
I don't doubt that you've purchased new computers that offered 100% speed improvements in certain functions, but those are most likely the result of a jump of at least two generations of graphics processor.
Going from 3.0GHz to 3.2GHZ is an increase of only 6.67%
Are you really telling me that without a stopwatch you would notice a 6.67% difference in rendering time?
Didn't think so.
