Judging by the submissions, it seems I have the fastest machine here I'll do another test on my older render machines and will try to get both of my co-workers to run the benchmark on their new Mac Pro machines (they have different ones), wonder how they'll perform.

It is there intentionally, to test multithreading of the populator.Water is not a significant contributor to the render times here actually, and it was designed that way intentionally. Try disabling it in the scene and you'll see. We included it because it *is* a common element of scenes though, in fact it's surprising to say you don't often see scenes with it.
