Specview 10 is a benchmark designed to test OpenGL performance. I will be using the multi-threaded tests to measure the performance when run in this mode. The tests used for comparison are listed below. The default multi-threaded tests were chosen to be comparable across platforms. In these tests, higher scores equate to better performance. Since the E8400 is a dual-core CPU on the two thread test will be run in Specview.
Higher is Better
PCMark Vantage is used to measure complete system performance. We will be running a series of tests to gauge performance of each individual board to see which board, if any, rises above the others.
During Specview two core testing, the Athlon X2 matched or tied most of the competition in the PROE testing, but fell short in both the Maya and Catia tests. For PCMark Vantage, it was on the tail of the other dual-cores and not far behind some of the quad-cores.
