SPEC Releases SPECviewperf 2020 v3.1 Benchmark, Key Update to the Worldwide Standard for Measuring Graphics Performance
GAINESVILLE, Va., Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) today announced the availability of the SPECviewperf 2020 v3.1 benchmark, a key update to the worldwide standard for measuring graphics performance based on professional applications. The SPECviewperf 2020 v3.1 benchmark now includes support for Windows 11 and enhanced support for 4K resolution.
The SPECviewperf 2020 v3.1 benchmark enables hardware and software vendors and consumers to measure the 3D graphics performance of systems running under the OpenGL and DirectX application programming interfaces. Unlike most application performance benchmarks, the SPECviewperf 2020 benchmark utilizes workloads, called viewsets, that accurately represent the real-world graphics content and behavior of professional applications, eliminating the need to install the applications themselves.
The viewsets included in the SPECviewperf 2020 v3.1 benchmark represent the latest versions of 3ds Max, Catia, Creo, Maya and Solidworks. The benchmark also includes datsets representing real-world medical applications.
Updates in SPECviewperf 2020 v3.1
“The SPECviewperf 2020 benchmark continues to evolve with the industry to make sure it provides the most relevant information about the performance of professional graphics workloads,” said Ross Cunniff, Chair of the SPEC Graphics Performance Committee. “Version 3.1 is an important update to the benchmark because it aligns with the adoption of Windows 11 by OEMs that are now installing it on new PCs.”
