SPECapc Releases Autodesk Maya 2009 Benchmark

WARRENTON, Va. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 8, 2009 SPEC’s Application Performance Characterization (SPECapc) project group has released new performance evaluation software for systems running Autodesk Maya 2009 software. Autodesk Maya 2009 is an integrated 3D modeling, animation, visual effects and rendering solution.

SPECapc for Maya 2009 was developed in close cooperation with Autodesk, the first independent software vendor to join the SPECapc project group.

“This is the first of what we hope will be many collaborations with Autodesk as an ISV member of SPECapc,” says Dan Bennett, SPECapc chair. “Membership in SPECapc enables ISVs to work more interactively with us to develop benchmarks that directly benefit their customers.”

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.

Available now

SPECapc for Maya 2009 is available for free downloading on the SPEC web site: www.spec.org/gwpg. It is available currently for Microsoft Windows XP and Vista 32- and 64-bit platforms. Because of the workload changes, results from SPECapc for Maya 2009 cannot be compared to those from previous SPECapc Maya benchmarks.

The SPECapc group also provides free benchmarks for systems running Autodesk 3ds Max 9, NewTek LightWave 3D v9.6, PTC Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0, SolidWorks 2007, and Solid Edge V19 and NX 4 from Siemens PLMS.
