GBR_RIP Performance Benchmark

In order to give the OEM an idea of how long a file will take to rasterize, we used a fairly complex RS274X file from a large dense circuit board design. The workstation used to run the benchmark was equipped with an Intel Pentium III running at 1 GHZ and loaded with 1GB of RAM.

These times do not include time required to format the bitmap or to write it to disk -- only the time that it took gbrplt.dll to compute the bitmap (using many bands) and place it in memory.
