blender benchmarking

This isn't an in-depth scientifically perfect benchmarking. It's a few quick test runs to get some rough comparisons.

Kernel? uname -m

x86_64 when it is an kernel 64 bits
i686 for 32 bits kernel

CPU? (not kernel)

cat /proc/cpuinfo

or:

grep flags /proc/cpuinfo

Under "flags" parameter, you will see various values. Among them, one is named "tm(transparent mode)" or "rm(real mode)" or "lm(long mode)"

rm means: 16 bit processor
tm means: 32 bit processor
lm means: 64 bit processor

Using study-grass-flowers-compositing-tree-v08-perf-test.blend to test Blender render times. Restarted Blender between every test.
