ANSYS NVIDIA Maximus testing methodology
Benchmark obtained comparing 2 and 8 CPU cores versus 8 CPU Cores + Tesla C2075 running ANSYS Mechanical 13.0 SP2, V13sp-5 Model- Turbine Geometry, 2.1M DOF, Static Nonlinear, Direct Sparse CPU: 2 x Westmere Xeon 5670 at 2.93 GHz.
Autodesk 3ds Max with NVIDIA iray NVIDIA Maximus testing methodology
Test consists of a collection of hard surface objects rendered outdoors in 3ds Max with iray 1.2 comparing an NVIDIA Tesla C2075 and the indicated Quadro GPU with the CPU relative to an Intel 3ghz x5570 Xeon CPU with 8 cores rendering. ECC has been turned off for all GPUs. Values shown are percent increase in render speed relative to CPU.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.5.2 NVIDIA Maximus testing methodology
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5.2 results obtained from 5 layers 6 effects per layer output to H.264 on a Dell Precision T7500, 48 GB, Windows 7 at 1440 x 1080 resolution. Price performance calculated using cost per system and number of clips possible per hour.
Dassault Systèmes CATIA V6 Live Rendering NVIDIA Maximus testing methodology
The comparison presented for CATIA Live Rendering is based on an industry standard workstation: an HP Z800 with dual quad core Xeon W5580 CPU @3.2GHz and appropriate CPU or GPU combination, 12GB RAM, Win7-64bit OS. The 275.89 Dassault Certified Driver was used in the benchmark running Dassault CATIA V6R2012.HF6 (188.8.131.52) at 1920x1200 resolution. The comparison shows average frames rendered per second (on a total of 100 frames). CPU-only result is based on 8 CPU cores, and CPU+GPU results are based on 6 CPU cores.
