SPECapc for SolidWorks 2003
is designed to represent a day in the life of a typical SolidWorks
2003 user. The benchmark was developed by SolidWorks. It is written
in Visual Basic and C, and runs on Windows 2000 and Windows XP
platforms. The benchmark uses different-sized CAD/CAM solid models,
the largest of which is an engine model with 3.13 million vertices.
Eight tests are included within the benchmark: I/O-intensive
operations, CPU-intensive operations, and six different graphics
tests. A single number is derived from a weighted geometric mean
of the normalized score for all eight tests. Scores are also reported
for each of the eight individual tests and for the geometric mean
of the six graphics tests. The reference system for computing
the normalized ratio is a 1.5GHZ Pentium4 with an Intel 850 chipset,
1GB PC800 ECC SDRAM, 40GB ATA/100 and NVIDIA Quadro2 Pro graphics.
A fully licensed, released version of SolidWorks 2003 (service
pack 3.1) is required.
