5.8.2 Render Window

Rendering without display will also speed up things. If your render is writing a lot of text to a terminal window, either hiding it, or better still, minimizing the window(s), will help somewhat. Note that the effect that these actions have is generally directly related to the time it takes to render the file, and the resolution of the render. They have less effect on long renders, and more effect on very fast renders.
