SPECapc® for 3ds Max 2015

The SPECapc® for 3ds Max 2015 benchmark is performance evaluation software for systems running Autodesk 3ds Max 2015. It requires that users have a working version of 3ds Max 2015 with Service Pack 1 applied.

The SPECapc for 3ds Max 2015 benchmark contains 48 tests for comprehensive measurement of modeling, interactive graphics, visual effects, CPU and GPU performance. Features in the latest SPECapc benchmark are keyed to upgrades in 3ds Max 2015, including new DirectX 11 shaders and vector maps, Nitrous viewport enhancements, and new dynamics and visual effects. The benchmark also improves run-to-run consistency and results reporting.

The benchmark was introduced on August 13, 2014.
