Don't have anything, sorry. Pretty much all my scenes use either ISL materials, glass, or both. Shouldn't prio 1 be to get those things to work anyway?

It is indeed, and that's part of why we need the testsuite. Nick is doing some great work on getting ISL shaders going in OpenCL, so eventually all materials will go through ISL.

Zom-B has come through again for us (thanks mate!) with two great test scenes, so I've a little work to do and then we can start benchmarking :)

Are IES lights considered complex? If not you can have that sideboard scene I did a few weeks back, as it is very simple! I can always change to a basic emitter if it's an issue...

I actually found a scene that I had forgotten about. You guys still interested?

I'm not on Skype, but I dropboxed that scene to admin. Work away if it's any use to you!

As long as the benchmarks are here by June/July I will be okay :D

At that point I will be purchasing either a 980 or a 390x

Hope to see something new tomorrow or the day after :)

The event I'm working on is just 1.5 month far away and I can't finish any serious render on cpu, so even a beta version will be welcome.

if you're pressed for time, try the renderfarm option

Being a newbie will be difficult and expensive to understand and design using only a renderfarm.

Anyway these are my specific problems I will deal with, I will be just happy to see Glare Tech last creature when will be released.

Feel free to start a thread in the help section of the forum with examples of your renders and problems.
Usually the problems are self made and can be worked around ;)
