APC Benchmarking Group
Seeks Partnerships with User Groups

The Application Performance Characterization (APC) project group is seeking software user groups 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 wants to work directly with user groups to develop benchmarks that reflect the real-world work of graphics users. Here are some of the benefits user groups will receive from working with the APC Group:

Contact the APC project group to discuss how we can work together to make your groupís application become the basis for a worldwide benchmarking standard.
