SPECapc Updates UGS NX Benchmark

WARRENTON, Va.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 12, 2007— SPEC's Application Performance Characterization (SPECapc) project group has released updated performance evaluation software for systems running UGS' NX(TM) digital product development software.

SPECapc for UGS NX 4 includes two new models provided by UGS to represent a broader range of dataset types and sizes. New functionality from UGS NX 4 is also included in the latest benchmark.

Operations tested by SPECapc for UGS NX 4 include loading parts, boolean operations on solids, rotations, zooms, pans, front and back clipping, modifying perspective parameters, full-view generation, and different edge modes. The benchmark records results for graphics, CPU and disk I/O operations, as well as a composite number for total system performance.

"UGS has been a great partner in helping us to develop and release updated benchmarks that benefit the user community, performance testers and developers," says Dan Bennett, SPECapc chair.

SPECapc for UGS NX 4 is available for free downloading on the SPEC/GWPG web site: www.spec.org/gwpg. The SPECapc group also provides free benchmarks for systems running Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0, Solid Edge V17, SolidWorks 2007, 3ds Max 9, and Maya 6.5.
