Rewards for New Benchmarks

SPEC's Graphics and Workstation Performance Group (SPEC/GWPG) is seeking ISVs, software user groups, publication editors and testing lab directors to help develop and maintain standardized benchmarks based on professional graphics and workstation applications. Organizations or individuals can submit existing benchmarks for consideration by a project group or help the group develop an entirely new benchmark.

It is SPEC/GWPG's belief that end users of graphics and workstation applications benefit greatly from a broad-ranging set of benchmarks focusing on applications in CAD/CAM/CAE, visualization, simulation, industrial design, animation and other popular application areas. SPEC/GWPG project groups -- SPECapc, SPECgpc and SPECwpc -- work directly with leading ISVs to develop benchmarks that reflect the real-world work of graphics and workstation users.

Here are some of the benefits your organization can receive from working with SPEC/GWPG:

  • Participation in the development process to ensure that benchmarks reflect real-world user experience.
  • Access to beta versions of benchmarks to test how your organization's application performs on different hardware systems. 
  • Recognition of your organization's application as an industry leader by SPEC/GWPG members representing major graphics systems vendors. 
  • Positive marketing exposure for your organization's application in the trade press and on the SPEC's web site, visited by 3 million annually. 
  • Positive marketing exposure for your organization's application through its use as a worldwide industry standard. 
  • Positive marketing exposure for your organizationís application through quotes of performance numbers in advertisements, testing lab reports in trade publications, and marketing collateral.

Contact info@spec.org to discuss how we can work together to make your organizationís application become the basis for a worldwide benchmarking standard.
