SPEC’s OpenGL Performance Characterization (SPECopc) project group has released SPECviewperf 10, a new version of its benchmarking software that adds performance measurement for full-scene anti-aliasing and multithreading. SPECviewperf 10 is available initially for Windows XP and Vista, with versions for Linux and Mac OS expected in upcoming months. Major new features in SPECviewperf 10 focus on performance evaluation in areas that are of increasing interest to the workstation market: higher-quality imaging and multi-core systems. SPECviewperf now provides the ability to compare performance of systems running in higher-quality graphics modes that use full-scene anti-aliasing. It also measures how effectively graphics subsystems scale when running multithreaded graphics content.
