Here is my results for the 1000.iam test. I compared 2011 and 2012. Same machine.. similar application option settings. If 15 is the refresh rate we are after, 2011 would do about 650 parts, 2012 is down to 525. A drop of about 20%.
ah ha.. Got it.. (Display Silhouettes should be turned off)
400 parts 15.2Hz refresh rate at 1920 x 1080 resolution. (quality hardware mode)
400 parts 15.8Hz refresh rate at 1920 x 1080 resolution. (performance hardware mode)
400 parts 15.95Hz refresh rate at 1920 x 1080 resolution (compatibility hardware mode)
I had "display silhouettes" turned on (default is off). As soon as I turned it off I went from 200 to 400 parts at 15Hz..
Silhouettes are turned on in both 2010 and 2012 in the results I show below.
IV2012 is still a dog when compared to IV2012 D3D 10.
However I did 500 parts with sihlouettes off in IV 2012, here are the quick results:
Quality, 500 parts, 1920 x 1200 16.39 Hz
Performance, 500 parts, 1920 x 1200 16.67 Hz
Compatability, 500 Parts, 1920 x 1200 16.95 Hz.
Also, I have dual 1920 x 1200 displays, not sure how that affects results since the only part of Inventor on the second monitor is the browser bar.
... Just to add to the numbers
Hits 15 Hz at 400 parts, although I noticed that if zoomed in the Hz went up. Evens out at 15-ish after the entire assembly is in view and spinning. Zooming out further doesn't change anything.
my vital statistics...
Windows 7 64 bit
Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 860 @ 2.8GHz; RAM 8Gb
Hard drive (300 GB)
NVIDIA Quadro 4000; Samsung SyncMaster 2343 - 2048 x 1142
Summary of interim results
During the summary, there was a suspicion that there may be misread the data. Therefore, if you have the opportunity, please submit the test data in a form.
And that test is more reliable? "Inventor 6 bench" is like a kinder for us...
300 part -
Inventor 6 bench 36,5Hz
Inventor 6 bench 8,8Hz
Inventor 6 bench 26,6Hz
but "Inventor 6 bench" exactly the same is not valid for all users
I ran my home PC to see how it handled the same.
I got approx. 460 parts (shaded with edges) at 15Mhz.
System is the following
AMD Athlon II X3 445 3.11Ghz
NVIDIA GTX 560 Superclocked 2GB
Windows 7 x64
