So any app you like now will have more stuff to compute. Look how much faster Terragen 0.9xx renders now. When I first played with it in 2001, the computer I used was 900mHz. The renders were much slower. Now think what Matt might introduce in Terragen 7. By the time that comes out, Terragen 2 renders may be almost realtime.
