I don't know what's going on - but my SuperFly render is taking about 30X longer than it did in 12.

I haven't used Firefly in a long time, but I have just tested it in P13. I have enabled Cast Shadows, Raytracing, Irradiance Caching, and Indirect Light, and rendered with a bucket size of 32 (rather small). The FF render was practically instant, much faster than P11 or P12. However, we have to consider render times depend on what's in your scene. If you have scenes with lots of transparency maps and SSS, that will drastically increase render times. For example, a character portrait where a big transmapped hair dominates the scene will likely kill FF rendering performance, no matter what CPU you have. But all in all, Firefly was super fast in my P13 test. Depending on what's in your scene, your experience may vary.
