The Application Performance Characterization (APC) project group is seeking ISVs to help in its quest to develop and maintain standardized benchmarks based on graphics-intensive applications. The non-profit APC group is part of SPECís Graphics Performance Characterization (GPC) Group. Current members include Compaq, Digital Equipment Corp., Dynamic Pictures Inc., Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, Intergraph, Real 3D, Silicon Graphics and Sun Microsystems.
It is the APCís belief that end users of graphics applications will benefit greatly from a broad-ranging set of benchmarks focusing on the graphics portions of applications in CAD/CAM/CAE, visualization, simulation, industrial design, animation, AEC and games. The APC group is working directly with leading ISVs to develop benchmarks that reflect the real-world work of graphics users. Here are some of the benefits ISVs receive from working with the APC Group:
