SPECviewperf 11

SPECviewperf 11

The SPECgpcSM project group's SPECviewperf 11 -- released in late June 2010 -- is totally new graphics performance evaluation software. Among the major changes are a new GUI, fully updated viewsets traced from newer versions of applications, larger models, and advanced OpenGL functionality such as shading and vertex buffer objects (VBOs).

In all of our SPECviewperf 11 tests other than TCVIS, the V7900 is faster than the V7800 that fits into the same price segment; sometimes by as much as 2x in some cases.  Much of this performance difference is architectural and driver-based as you can see from the smaller gaps between the V7900 and V5900.
