SPECwpc Benchmarks

By downloading any of the following benchmarks, you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to abide by the terms of the SPECwpc License Agreement.

SPECwpcSM V1.2

UPDATE (JUNE 2015): SPECwpc V1.2 was released on this site on June 3, 2015. It extends performance measurement from physical to virtualized workstation configurations. Results generated on SPECwpc V1.2 are comparable to those from SPECwpc V1.0.4, as tests haven't changed. All submissions to the SPEC website should now be done on SPECwpc V1.2.

SPECwpc is performance evaluation software for vendors and users of workstations that run professional applications. It is designed to run on Microsoft Windows 7 and 8.1 64-bit platforms. The benchmark includes more than 30 tests in six categories: media and entertainment (3D animation, rendering), product development (CAD/CAM/CAE), life sciences (medical, molecular), financial services, energy and general operations. The benchmark does not require the full application and associated licensing to be installed on the system under test, simplifying set-up, running and results reporting.

NOTE (06/26/2015): An internal error in SPECwpc V1.2 and earlier might affect the scores for the LifeSci and Energy composites by up to 5%. Due to an error in the way clipping planes are handled, results for configurations containing certain high-end graphics cards are abnormally high for tests 5 and 7 of the energy-01 dataset and marginally higher for tests 5 and 10 of the medical-01 dataset. No other datasets are affected. This bug will be fixed in the upcoming V2.0, slated for late Summer or early Fall of 2015. More information.

SPECviewperf® 12

UPDATE (February 25, 2015): SPECviewperf 12.0.2 was released on February 25, 2015. It extends graphics performance measurement from physical to virtualized workstation configurations. Results for SPECviewperf 12.0.2 are comparable to those from SPECviewperf 12.0.1, but not to any other previous versions.

SPECviewperf 12 is a worldwide standard for measuring graphics performance based on professional applications. It measures the 3D graphics performance of systems running under the OpenGL and Direct X application programming interfaces. The benchmark does not require the full application and associated licensing to be installed on the system under test, simplifying set-up, running and results reporting.

SPECapcSM for SolidWorks 2015™
SPECapc for SolidWorks 2015, introduced on July 29, 2015, is performance evaluation software for vendors and users of computing systems running SolidWorks 2015 CAD/CAM software. It is designed to run on Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit platforms.

A fully licensed or trial version of SolidWorks 2015 Service Pack 2 or greater is required to run the benchmark. SolidWorks feature enhancements such as RealView and OIT are baked into the application and support for new graphics hardware is added via service packs. This is the reason that SPECapc has deviated from its norm of requiring just one specific service pack when running the benchmark. Please be aware that performance might differ between service packs. SolidWorks 2015 does not support the use of OIT transparency for all graphics hardware, and will instead use an older style transparency for these cases, so all results might not be directly comparable.

SPECapc requests that users review the setup instructions before running this benchmark. The group recommends resetting application settings back to default and then following the setup instructions to ensure users have the proper settings before running the benchmark. The default application settings need to be altered for PhotoView360 for the CPU tests to run and display properly. The run rules are included in the benchmark package, and have details about the requirements for running the benchmark.
