SPECapc updates NX benchmark

By JerrySarfati

SPEC’s Application Performance Characterization (SPECapc) project group has released updated benchmark software for systems running NX 8.5.SPECapc can be used to test the comparative performance of workstations.

The updated benchmark includes four models ranging in size from approximately 87MB to 347MB. It tests performance for operations such as loading parts, booleans, rotations, zooms, pans, front and back clipping, modifying perspective parameters, full-view generation, different edge modes, translucency and hidden-surface removal. Composite results are recorded for graphics, CPU and disk I/O operations.
