SPECapc® for Solid Edge V11

The SPECapc® for Solid Edge V11 benchmark was developed by EDS PLM Solutions in cooperation with the SPECapc committee. It represents typical user operations that are valuable in evaluating the performance of systems running Solid Edge.

The benchmark was released on March 20, 2002.

The benchmark runs on Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000. Two Solid Edge models are used for the benchmark: a well-head assembly with 1,320 parts and 1.3-million polygons, and a 64-part hydraulic jack assembly with 66,000 polygons.

Four basic areas of performance are measured:

  • Graphics – measures commonly used commands in three modes: smooth shading, wireframe, and smooth shading with textures and reflections.
  • File I/O – measures opening and saving the well-head assembly model using three different display configurations: all inactive, all active, and a combination of active, inactive and hidden parts.
  • CPU – exercises real-time VHL representation and re-computing an assembly.
  • Workflow – represents a typical set of operations users will execute during the course of creating a project, such as real-time drawing view placement, in-place assembly activation, in-place part activation, modifying a model, and updating all the files due to the model change.

EDS PLM Solutions considers all four portions of the benchmark to be equally important in evaluating performance using Solid Edge, so they have equal weightings when calculating the geometric mean.
