AMD is pleased to recognize SPECviewperf® 12 as a new benchmarking tool to measure professional graphics performance. The new synthetic benchmark replaces SPECviewperf® 11, which was introduced in June 2010. Released by the SPEC® Graphics Performance Characterization (SPECgpc) project group, the new software includes fully updated viewsets based on traces from professional applications.
AMD FirePro™ graphics engineering teams have spent years optimizing hardware and driver code to improve real-world application performance, visual quality, and advanced feature support. We have been recommending the use of real-world applications benchmarks like SPECapc® for almost half a decade, in order to properly evaluate graphics performance and visual quality. Most professional users only run a few key applications for their day-to-day workflows and it is critical to benchmark their actual applications, right down to the specific versions being used, so that they can purchase the best professional graphics card to meet their specific needs.
