Re: Benchmark for Autodesk Inventor 2012

11-04-2011 12:28 AM in reply to: JohanLarsson

Tried it at work now.

 

Windows XP 32 bit

Intel Xeon 5160 3.0 GHz
Quadro FX3500, driver 6.14.12.7614, dual monitors ran the benchmark on the smaller 1600×1200

RAM 4Gb

Refresh rate 250 part  -15Hz

 

This computer feels way more sluggish than the computer at home. I cannot maximize Inventor, then the graphics freezes completely. Inventor still reports a framerate though.

Here is the answer to karthur1: benchmark using the Engine MKII.iam sample file by Inventor 6 Benckmark.ivb.

If any of you guys find the time it would be very interesting to see results from other operations.

 

For example if we create a drawing with the assembly

 - Section view

 - Change the distance between elements in the patterns and update the drawing.

 - Show hidden lines.

 - Add iso view

 

It should be easy to write a VBA script for this and just measure the time for each operation. I dont know if we can get the computer specifiaction via VBA.

And comparing the results of both tests on my hardware. Red and black curve are even quite similar ... :smileywink:

I made it out of curiosity only.

Malenki,

The previous post that I made was with 2011.  Here are the results on the same machine comparing 2011 and 2012.  I have the application options set the same between both versions (als close as I can).

 

I am also in the process of doing the test with the 1000.iam.  From what I have tested so far, 2012 is much slower than 2011.

 

My screen resolution is 1280x1024.

I can not compare them. I kicked Inventor 2011 quite a long time. Results, You showed are not staggering for v.2012.

WOW.. Autodesk should be ashamed. Almost a 50% loss of performance in that test (shaded anyways).

Here are my results:

 

Inventor6 Grapics Benchmark

Wireframe        = 104 FPS

Didn't have the Engine.iam file on my system. I remember it and used a considerably larger model.
