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:
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.
