Default Rendering point lights

Hi there people!

I noticed some drastic increase in processing time when using point lights, compared to the other kinds of light.
I noticed the difference when using IPR render, and the delay occurs when updating the image and not when rendering it for the first time.

Did anybody observe that, or there maybe something wrong I'm doing?

Thx.

Mário.

I was dealing with fog...when I use fog it really lows the speed.
The IPR size is 116MB. Is it considered big?

Thx

Hey I discovered when this happens my cpu usage (on the windows task manager) goes to 100%.
Think there's something to do w/ my hardware, right?

Sorry bother fellas...
