GAINESVILLE, Va., May 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC), the trusted global leader in computing benchmarks, today announced the availability of the SPECapc for Solidworks 2024 benchmark, an update to SPEC’s performance evaluation software for vendors and users of computing systems running Dassault Systèmes Solidworks 2024 CAD/CAM software.

“As Dassault Systèmes improves Solidworks every year, SPEC is committed to keeping the SPECapc for Solidworks benchmark aligned with the latest features and capabilities,” said SPECapc Chair Jessica Heerboth. “With the new version of the benchmark, we have added measurement for hidden line removal (HLR), which has a dramatically improved algorithm. All users of Solidworks 2024 will benefit from this up-to-date measurement.”

The SPECapc for Solidworks 2024 benchmark consists of 48 graphics tests and 12 CPU tests, exercising a full range of graphics and CPU functionality. The graphics-oriented tests use four Solidworks view settings — RealView, Ambient Occlusion and shadows — in combination with shaded and shaded-with-edges display styles, and hidden line removal. Drawing mode is also measured. Twelve CPU tests within the benchmark perform rebuild, simulation, conversion and visualize CPU rendering. The benchmark features nine models, with the largest containing 4.75 million triangles.

The 10 models included in the SPECapc for Solidworks 2024 benchmark are:

  • Audi R8 (car) — 715 MB in memory, exercising graphics and Visualize CPU ray tracing
  • Black owl (desktop computer) — 1.15 GB in memory, exercising graphics and Visualize CPU ray tracing
  • Digger (backhoe) — 464 MB in memory, exercising graphics and Visualize CPU ray tracing
  • Ferrari (car) — 533 MB in memory, exercising graphics and Visualize CPU ray tracing
  • Jet engine — 665 MB in memory, exercising graphics and Visualize CPU ray tracing
  • Menjac (motor assembly) — 514 MB in memory, exercising graphics
  • Motor — 392 MB in memory, exercising graphics
  • SpaceShipCrawler (NASA Crawler Transporter Model) — 2.3 GB in memory, exercising graphics
  • Super car (gullwing door) — 822 MB in memory, exercising graphics
  • Tesla tower — 495 MB in memory, exercising graphics
