The SPECapc® for SolidWorks 2015 benchmark is performance evaluation software for vendors and users of computing systems running SolidWorks 2015 CAD/CAM software. It is designed to run on Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit platforms.
The benchmark was released on July 29, 2015.
The benchmark consists of nine graphics tests and two CPU tests. The graphics-oriented tests use three SolidWorks view settings — RealView, Ambient Occlusion and shadows — in combination with shaded and shaded-with-edges display styles. Two CPU tests within the benchmark perform tessellation and PhotoView360 rendering. The benchmark features 12 models, three of which are new in this version of the benchmark, with the largest containing 4.75 million triangles.
New features exercised in the SPECapc for SolidWorks 2015 benchmark are Order Independent Transparency (OIT), a modern methodology for quickly displaying transparency, and Full-Scene Anti-Aliasing (FSAA) for higher-quality visuals. The benchmark can be run with either the default anti-aliasing method (edges/sketches only) or with FSAA.
