Application Benchmarks with 3D Studio Max R3.1
By no means should you over-inflate the importance of synthetic benchmarks. The performance when running the right applications in the real world is where it's at! The Fire GL4 from ATI hits the first bull's-eye with the ever popular 3D Studio Max.
Application Benchmarks with PTC ProEngineer 2000i2
PTC's ProEngineer is very expensive, and targeted at high-end mechanical engineering markets primarily, which explains why this program isn't as well-known as 3D Studio Max or AutoCad, for example. The SPEC benchmark for ProEngineer 2000 i2 uses very complex models. The flagship Wildcat II 5110 is the victor here.
