SPECapc* for SOLIDWORKS* 2013 is performance evaluation software for vendors and users of computing systems running SOLIDWORKS 2013 CAD/CAM software. It is designed to run on Microsoft Windows* 7 64-bit platforms.
The benchmark includes 10 new models, each of which is exercised with 12 tests. Models were selected from the SOLIDWORKS user community, with an emphasis on real-world datasets that can be distributed in the public domain. The largest model is 2.25 million triangles.
The 10 graphics-oriented tests in SPECapc for SOLIDWORKS 2013 use three SOLIDWORKS view settings—RealView, ambient occlusion, and shadows—in combination with shaded and shaded-with-edges display styles. The two CPU tests within the benchmark include tessellation and PhotoView 360* rendering.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.com/performance.
Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.
Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.
Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel.
Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
