Does anyone know of a fast method for 3D triangle intersection tests?

The SAT (separating axis test) is fairly efficient, and is a common solution to this particular problem. In my experience though, per-triangle collision detection isn't used that often in practice for reasons of efficiency and robustness (simpler geometric primitives or bounding shapes are usually used instead).
