SPECapc Lightwave 3D 9
Lightwave is a complete modeling, rendering, and animation system used extensively in broadcast television production, film visual effects, video game development, print graphics, and visualization. We installed Lightwave v9.6 trial edition and used the SPECapc benchmark specifically designed to test the program's performance.
We saw mixed results as the V9800 achieved the highest interactive score of the group, but also had one of the lowest multi-task scores. Our render scores were almost identical for every card tested. Results from the interactive scores were the most diverse, and expose the 10% advantage the V9800 has over NVIDIA's ultra high end Quadro 6000.
