Warrenton, VA. — SPEC/GPC’s Application Performance Characterization (SPECapc) project group released an updated benchmark for systems running Pro/ENGINEER 2000i2. The benchmark and initial performance results from SPECapc members are available for free on the SPEC/GPC web site: http://www.spec.org/gpc .
The new benchmark uses the same model and operations as previous versions, but has been updated to reflect new functionality added in Pro/ENGINEER 2000i2. Results from previous Pro/E benchmarks cannot be compared accurately to those from the new benchmark.
SPECapc is a project group of the Graphics Performance Characterization (GPC) Group, which in turn is part of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corp. (SPEC). SPEC is a non-profit corporation formed to establish, maintain and endorse a standardized set of relevant benchmarks that can be applied to the newest generation of high-performance computers. SPEC’s membership includes computer hardware and software vendors, leading universities, and research facilities worldwide.
