APC Benchmarking Group
Seeks Partnerships with Publications



The Application Performance Characterization (APC) project group is seeking help from publication editors and testing lab directors who have developed benchmarks or are interested in the benchmarking process. The group is currently developing a suite of standardized benchmarks based on graphics-intensive applications. The non-profit APC group is part of SPECís Graphics Performance Characterization (GPC) Group. Current members include 3Dlabs, Compaq, Dell, HAL Computers, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, Intergraph, Real 3D, S3, SGI, 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 publication editors and testing lab directors to develop benchmarks that reflect the real-world work of graphics users. Here are some of the benefits of working with the APC Group:
