3D Studio Max rendered a 1080p movie frame in just over half a minute, which is good, but anyone looking to create a full length feature will probably need access to a "rendering farm"...
Cinema4D rendered a simpler mini-video of a raindrop falling on a rose petal in only two minutes, which is close to real-time encoding.
Adobe Photoshop applied a bunch of advanced filtering techniques to a huge 96 MB uncompressed image in just over a minute and a half.
AVG Antivirus scanned an entire 3.82 GB folder in just over a minute. We wish all our systems could perform like that!
WinRAR compressed an entire CD-sized folder in just over two minutes on our latest high-end configuration.
