It took the new Second Life viewer 3 times as long to rez in builds -- sculpties were a real problem. In addition, once fully rezzed in, I found myself unable to move at high settings for a while, while Phoenix allows me to run ultra graphics at a maximum distance with no problems.
I actually plan to run some tests and will report numbers here. I am not ready to givc up on the new Second Life viewer, since it looks so cool and can be customized. Perhaps I am not doing something right, and need to clear everything for a fresh install -- but as things are now, I am sticking with plain old Phoenix with its great light settings for my photography.
