CUDA speed!

15-minute Spaceship project.

I thought I'd do a comparison between CPU and CUDA powered Cycles rendering:

Final Quality (CPU i7 3770 3.50Ghz): 2:46s
Final Quality (CUDA Nvidia GTX690): 45s

Holy moley! That's a non-trivial performance lead from my graphics card's computation engine. I realise that currently there are caveats to this performance benefit --- it's only reliable for use on basic scenes. Still, it bodes well as CPU performance appears to be in a bit of a slump compared to graphics card architecture.
