3d render times

I am trying to render a "final quality" 3d animation clip that is 5 seconds long. After 36 hours I cancelled the render.

 

What is to be expected for render times for Photoshop CS5 for 3D animations, understanding that there are lots of variables?

 

This kind of rendering time makes the tool unusable.

 

Do I need to configure something differently on my system to achieve reasonable render times?

 

I am using:

 

Model Name:          Mac Pro

  Model Identifier:          MacPro5,1

  Processor Name:          Quad-Core Intel Xeon

  Processor Speed:          2.4 GHz

  Number Of Processors:          2

  Total Number Of Cores:          8

  L2 Cache (per core):          256 KB

  L3 Cache (per processor):          12 MB

  Memory:          8 GB

  Processor Interconnect Speed:          5.86 GT/s

  Boot ROM Version:          MP51.007F.B03

  SMC Version (system):          1.39f11

  SMC Version (processor tray):          1.39f11

 

Any help much appreciated.
