SPECgpc Releases SPECviewperf 11

Enermax Introduces 720W LibertyECO II PSU

SPECgpc Releases SPECviewperf 11

SPEC's Graphics Performance Characterization (SPECgpc) project group has released SPECviewperf 11, a major new version of its graphics benchmarking software that includes a new GUI and fully updated viewsets based on traces from professional applications.

SPECgpc members involved in the development of SPECviewperf 11 include AMD, Apple, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Intel, and NVIDIA.

The new SPECviewperf 11 GUI makes it easier for novice or infrequent users to set up multiple benchmark runs, access results, and receive help for common issues. Identical scripting is used for both Windows and Linux environments, helping ensure consistent results across different operating systems.

Test files in SPECviewperf 11, called viewsets, are traced from newer versions of eight different graphics-intensive applications and incorporate advanced OpenGL functionality such as shaders and vertex buffer objects (VBOs). The new viewsets also contain larger models -- some with more than 60 million vertices -- to exercise the latest generation of graphics cards and to reflect current user workloads.

SPECviewperf 11 supports both 32- and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows 7, Vista and XP, as well as popular Linux distributions.

SPECviewperf 11 and its accompanying viewsets -- nearly 1GB in size -- can be purchased on DVD for $50 or downloaded for free.
