This has been discussed before; graphics are a possibility, but not implemented yet. If you\'re interested in seeing what is being rendered, there really isn\'t much to see. Many of the workunits you get from BURP are but a fraction of one frame.

To what degree does it slow down? I personally think it would be cool just to see what my computer is really being used for, not just a bar telling me how much longer until I get another WU.

This is all you\'re going to see:

Each WU is only a fraction of a frame.

While that isn\'t all that exciting, I think it would be nice to see what your computer is doing. It might only be a black streak, but you can watch the black streak grow over a period of time.
