Autodesk inventor 2012 has worked exclusively on Direct3D. At the moment, there is no single test that is likely to correctly identify performance hardware.The results of such tests as Cinebench, 3DMark, SPECviewperf - untrue. But the need to determine the real performance of video cards is growing. According to this offer on their own to determine the performance of different video cards. For the test we will use the internal mechanism of Autodesk inventor 2012 definition of refresh rate.
One benchmark test that you can perform is to run the Post Statistics.
This requires an understanding of registry editing.
Go Start>Run & type “regedit”. Click OK & navigate to this branch: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\Inventor\Regis
The next time Inventor is run, a small information box will appear at the bottom of your screen.
We twist the assembly . Pattern editing in the assembly "1000.iam", we change the number of parts in the assembly until the refresh rate will be equal to 15 Hz. This is the minimum, and psychologically comfortable refresh rate.We work exclusively in the factory settings
The results report in the next volume:
1. The operating system and its capacity
4. Video card
5. Number of parts with assembly at a refresh rate of 15Hz.
Windows 7 64 bit
Intel Core i7-x990
Nvidia Geforce GTX 580
Refresh rate 300 part -15Hz
Windows 7 64 bit
Intel core duo L7500
Mobile Intel 965 express
Refresh rate 20 part -15Hz
Results (shaded with edges)
Refresh rate 200 parts - 15.63Hz
Refresh rate 400 parts - 16.13Hz
500 parts = 15.8Hz
600 parts = 13.8Hz
Interestingly, if I change the first pattern from a 10x10 to 5x5 and the second pattern to 5, 125 parts = 11.7Hz
All done as "shaded with edges".
wow.. this has got me curious.. mbenoy got some excellent results.. Is it the xeon or the quadro or the velociraptor or all combined.. We need more results.. Come people.. Do it.. Only takes a few minutes.
If interested, while rotating:
CPU Usage = 50%
GPU Clock = 45%
GPU Memory Usage = 5% (of 1GB)
If you take a look at each of the cores and how it breaks down to get the 50%. Obviously, the CPU cores jump all over the place while making a total of 50%. The following are very rough estimates of the ranges of each core during that time:
Core 1 = 80-95%
Core 2 = 70-85%
Core 3 = 8-30%
Core 4 = 30-55%
I don't have time to try this at work tomorrow, but I'm curious-- does the pixel count of the display have an effect on this benchmark? My laptop screen is 1680 x 1050, but the screen I mostly use it with on my desk is 2560 x 1600, 2-1/3 times the number of pixels. I suspect that the GPU works harder to calculate more pixels, so these results will have to be related to pixel count, I think.
For the test results add one more parameter - the screen resolution.
Intel core i7-x990 - 1900x1200 load: CPU- 12%; GPU-9%; GPU memory 64MB.
Intel duo core L7500 - 1024x768
My results with 15Hz: slightly above 500 part (see attachment) .
