it goes even much faster then this. stay tuned...

Paper/code or it didn't happen! ;)

I'm also using single-ray MBVH on CPU & MIC, but for me it's better than MBVH/RS even for first bounce rays: http://www.cs.ubbcluj.ro/~afra/publicat ... _mbvh8.pdf

A ~20% speedup sounds perfectly reasonable (what about multi-threaded perf though?), but I would be really surprised if we could improve this by an order of magnitude for incoherent rays.
