Arnold rendering engine?

Hi guys

have you tried Arnold rendering engine? It's originally for soft Image but they have recently released a version for Maya too!
It's extremely fast! I had a scene with about 2,000,000 polygons; mental-ray even could not take care of it, and with Maxwell it took about 6hrs for a low quality render. But Arnold did it in just 2hrs!
<b> my hardware: RAM: 4GB. CPU: core2due 2.8GHz (I know that's a little bit weak for 3D graphics;-))</b>

the snail is my first test after learning it, and second one is my last recent try to see engine's power
As always is it has its own limitations, but it is worth to try it
