Note that...

- most of the scenes that mention a speedup are pathological cases

- it appears to me that when they say "173% faster", 100% would equal no 
speedup (though I may be mistaken; but it is remarkable that all these 
values are >100%), making some of the numbers a bit less impressive than 
they appear at first.

(Interestingly, they only mention the speedup, but not the absolute 
render time...?!)

As for POV-Ray, I guess there's still room for improvement here and 
there, but it'll be hard to find anything that could be sped up by 3943%.

Well, going for better handling of CSG differences (the pathological 
case with lots of tiny holes in a single big object) could be a case.

Subsurface scattering still provides a lot of room for speedup, too, but 
I guess that doesn't count, as it's still under development anyway.
