In other 3D-rendering benchmarks (3D Studio MAX r2) the Athlon T-bird has scored about
22% better when compared at equal clocks. That gives Athlon 1.2GHz about 46% better
performance than a 1GHz Intel. So, given the prize is somewhat similar and that 
POVRAY behaves in a similar fashion as 3D Studio MAX r2, AMD is the way to go.
