Rewards for New Benchmarks

The SPECapc and SPECgpc project groups are seeking ISVs, software user groups, publication editors and testing lab directors to help develop and maintain standardized benchmarks based on graphics-intensive applications. Organizations or individuals can submit existing benchmarks for consideration by a project group or help the group develop an entirely new benchmark.

It is SPEC/GWPG's belief that end users of graphics applications will benefit greatly from a broad-ranging set of benchmarks focusing on applications in CAD/CAM/CAE, visualization, simulation, industrial design, animation and other popular application areas. SPECapc and SPECgpc are working directly with leading ISVs to develop benchmarks that reflect the real-world work of graphics users.

Here are some of the benefits your organization can receive from working with SPECapc or SPECgpc:

  • Participation in the development process to ensure that benchmarks reflect real-world user experience.
  • Access to beta versions of benchmarks to test how your organization's application performs on different hardware systems. 
  • Recognition of your organization's application as an industry leader by SPECapc and/or SPECopc members representing major graphics systems vendors. 
  • Positive marketing exposure for your organization's application in the trade press and on the SPEC/GWPG Group's web site, visited by 15 million annually. 
  • Positive marketing exposure for your organization's application through its use as a worldwide industry standard. 
  • Positive marketing exposure for your organizationís application through quotes of performance numbers in advertisements, testing lab reports in trade publications, and marketing collateral.

Contact SPECapc or SPECgpc to discuss how we can work together to make your organizationís application become the basis for a worldwide benchmarking standard.
