    I am going to kick things off with some 2011 vs 2012 comparisons I did.

    In general, Revit 2012 is slower than 2011. In the model creation portion of the benchmark, 2012 is a little faster where curtain walls are concerned, and quite a bit faster at exports. Everything else is a little slower to a lot slower, which is disappointing. Rendering looks to be a little faster, but nothing earth shattering. But hardware accelerated model manipulation is faster. And with all views now supporting Shadows & Ambient Shadows, that is a welcome improvement.
    Of course the Consistent Colors comparison is not apples to apples. In 2011 there are no shadows, in 2012 there are. And yet, 2012 is only a little slower with shadows than 2011 without. Nice, that. Look for a more detailed report on view performance and GPU issues in the near future.

    Some things to consider.
    1: This is a comparison of the initial release of 2012 with the second service pack of 2011. I don’t have any data for the initial release of 2011, so perhaps we can expect 2012 to catch up half way through it’s life? Still disappointing, but gotta be realistic.
    2: Truth is, most time spent using Revit is sitting and thinking. The time I notice performance the most is when manipulating the model, and in that respect 2012 looks to be a bit faster. We'll see if other folks see similar results.
