SPECViewPerf 10 Performance
Before we dive into the numbers, here's a quick snippet of the next benchmark suite we'll step you though; SPECViewperf 10, courtesy of spec.org:
"The SPECopc project group's SPECviewperf 10 is totally new performance evaluation software. In addition to features found in previous versions, it now provides the ability to compare performance of systems running in higher-quality graphics modes that use full-scene anti-aliasing, and measures how effectively graphics subsystems scale when running multithreaded graphics content. Since the SPECviewperf source and binaries have been upgraded to support changes, no comparisons should be made between past results and current results for viewsets running under SPECviewperf 10. SPECviewperf 10 requires OpenGL 1.5 and a minimum of 1GB of system memory. It currently supports Windows 32/64."
Thanks to its Quadro FX 4800, the S20 performs at the top of the class in the first three Viewperf tests - 3dsmax, Catia and Ensight. For some reason, though, it falls a bit short in the OpenGL-based Maya test.
