SPECperfview CATIA Tests

SPECviewperf is a portable OpenGL performance benchmark program written in C. It was developed by IBM. Later updates and significant contributions were made by SGI, Digital (Compaq, HP), 3Dlabs (Creative Labs) and other SPECopc project group members. SPECviewperf provides a vast amount of flexibility in benchmarking OpenGL performance. Currently, the program runs on most implementations of UNIX, Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Linux.

SPECviewperf parses command lines and data files, sets the rendering state, and converts data sets to a format that can be traversed using OpenGL rendering calls. It renders the data set for a pre-specified amount of time or number of frames with animation between frames. Finally, it outputs the results. SPECviewperf reports performance in frames per second. Other information about the system under test - all the rendering states, the time to build display lists (if applicable), and the data set used - are also output in a standardized report.

A "benchmark" using SPECviewperf is really a single invocation of SPECviewperf with command-line options telling the SPECviewperf program which data set to read in, which texture file to use, what OpenGL primitive to use to render the data set, which attributes to apply and how frequently, whether or not to use display lists, and so on. One quickly realizes that there are an infinite number of SPECviewperf "benchmarks" (an infinite number of data sets multiplied by an almost infinite number of command-line states).

As this is a single-threaded benchmark, our quad core and dual core processors are now on a level playing field. The dual cores do put up a decent fight, particularly the Intel E7400. However, the Phenom II X4 965 takes the lead, with a 4.5% increase over the 955.

Hi There!

I would like to ask from you guys if which is better AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE or Intel® Core? i7-920. I am planning to assemble such high speed processors but I am confused about these two products.
Please send me your reply to my email which I provided.

Thanks & More Power,

R. Devocion, Jr.

sir, if you want performance, go for Core i7 920 though. It much faster than Phenomm II x4 965. but the phenom is much cheaper than core i7.

kevin, Are you sure man?
Phenom IIx4 965 in some aspects is better than Corei7 920,and core 2 Quad Q9650.
take a look at this processors comparison:
##anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=3619

Phenom II 965 is cheap and with a very good performance.

Over all passmark rates both the i7 920 and Q9650 higher than the Phenom965 BE but they're comparable. Q9650 very comparable, i7 920 less comparable...however pricewise there's no comparison. Phenom 965BE is WAY less expensive! Phenom 965BE is a quadcore after all.
