Rebuild time comparison - volunteers wanted for 5 mins

In my quest to find out how much machine specs can improve rebuild speeds I thought I would make a challenging part and see if anyone would be interested in comparing rebuild times.

 

Under the sweep edit sketch5 and change the dimension of 30 to 40.  See how long it takes to rebuild after you press finish sketch.

 

My machine takes 24 seconds in both 2011 & 2012.

 

Specs are

Windows XP64

Duo Core E8400 3.0 GHz

8Gb ram

Quadro FX 570 card.

 

Thanks.

Thanks guys, the I5 has a similar speed so maybe win7 is afactor there, but maybe its cache or something else as well.

 

I just over clocked to 3.41Ghz and am at 19 sec now.

Don't forget that IV only uses one core. My quad core basically runs IV at 1/4 strength (3.1/4~750Mhz).  I assume a "Duo Core" is dual, that means your running about twice as fast as me, at least as far as rebuilding in IV goes.

It comes down to the clock speed of a single core in the CPU when dealing with IPT and IAM files. If you could get a really fast single core CPU for IPT and IAM files, it would be all you need.

 

IDW creation with IV2012 does take advantage of multi cores, FEA and Studio also take advantage of multi CPU cores.

Thought I'd have a go at this.

I'm using Inventor 2012 SP1 on windows 7 64 bit on bootcamp.

 

The machine is a 2011 iMac; Intel core i7 quad core 2.8 Ghz with 4Gb ram.

I got a shade under 15 seconds.

Minor nitpick: each core runs at full clock speed.  So IV is using 1 core at 3.1 GHz.  You have 3 cores at 3.1 GHz for all the work you can do while waiting for IV to finish calculating.

18.5 seconds here Intel Xeon Processor W3530 @ 2.80Ghz

Pretty sad when the Mac beats us all, lol.
