OT: Maxwell Render Learning Edition!

Rich - Thanks for the input.

What is the typical render time for an object such as a wrist watch? Will Maxwell take advantage of a 12 core PC?

I currently use KeyShot and love its speed, but I'm becoming aware of its limitations as a biased render engine. Maxwell is unbiased and due to its very realistic lighting and I'd like to give it a try.
