SPECapc for Maya® 5 was developed by Alias in cooperation
with SPECapc. It includes four scenarios created in Maya 5 that
enable users to evaluate scene drawing and playback performance,
CPU-intensive operations, and standard I/O performance.
Each of the four models - a werewolf, human hand, insect and
squid - are rendered and displayed in the five different modes
used in Maya 5: wireframe, Gouraud-shaded, texture, texture highlighted
with a wireframe mesh, and texture selected (texture with wireframe
mesh and control points). The benchmark is unique in its ability
to test performance for large texture sizes and multiple viewports.
SPECapc for Maya 5 consists of 30 individual tests, 27 of which
are run three times. The final scoring is based 70 percent on
graphics, 20 percent on CPU performance, and 10 percent on I/O.
The reference system for computing the normalized ratio is a
1.50GHz Pentium 4 running Windows 2000 SP3 with 1GB of PC800 ECC
RDRAM, an NVIDIA Quadro2 Pro graphics card, and a 20GB ATA/100
A fully licensed, released version of Maya 5 is required.
