Maya 2012

Our last benchmark is of Maya; we used the 2012 version of the program but combined it with the SPECapc test, which dates back to 2009.

Maya 2012
3D Rendering and Animation
Specapc's Maya test page states, "Nearly 40 individual tests are run on five workload models to reflect the processes used to model, animate and render scenes in Autodesk Maya 2009. A particular emphasis is placed on testing performance for large texture sizes and multiple viewports.

In Maya 2012, the V3900 is a hair over 10% faster in the graphics segment and 8% faster overall. Again, this is slightly out of synch with SPECViewPerf 11, which showed the V3900 leading the V3800 by 45%. Both figures are equally correct; they difference between them is a result of different workloads.

The Radeon HD 6870 can't keep up with the professional GPUs, it lags the V3900 by 40% in the graphics test and 28% overall.
