SPECapc* for Maya 2009*
SPECapc* for Maya 2009* contains a major new workload - an animated toy store scene donated by AMD - as well as upgrades to the workloads found in SPECapc for Maya 6.5*. Nearly 40 individual tests are run on five workload models to reflect the processes used to model, animate, and render scenes in Autodesk Maya 2009*. A particular emphasis is placed on testing performance for large texture sizes and multiple viewports. Individual test scores are compiled by the benchmark into composite scores for graphics, CPU, and I/O performance, then factored into an overall composite score. Composite scores are normalized against a reference system for a "bigger-is-better" measurement.
Please see www.spec.org for more information on the workloads.
