SPECviewperf 11

The SPECgpcSM project group’s SPECviewperf 11 — released in late June 2010 — is totally new graphics performance evaluation software. Among the major changes are a new GUI, fully updated viewsets traced from newer versions of applications, larger models, and advanced OpenGL functionality such as shading and vertex buffer objects (VBOs).

There are a host of interesting points here in our first round of SPECviewperf 11 results.  Just like we saw with our Quadro 5000 review the NVIDIA solution definitely has a performance lead in our testing this time around.  In looking at the V9800 and V8800 comparison, there are a couple of instances, SW-02 and Lightwave-01, where it appears the larger frame buffer is really coming into play and improving performance.
