SPECwpc V2.0 was released on this site on November 18, 2015. It improves scalability measurement for workstations with large numbers of processing cores and fully integrates solid-state storage into performance testing. Results generated on SPECwpc V2.0 are not comparable to those from previous versions of the benchmark. All submissions to the SPEC website should now be done on SPECwpc V2.0.
SPECwpc is performance evaluation software for vendors and users of physical and virtualized workstations that run professional applications. It is designed to run on Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 64-bit platforms. The benchmark includes more than 30 tests in six categories: media and entertainment (3D animation, rendering), product development (CAD/CAM/CAE), life sciences (medical, molecular), financial services, energy and general operations. The benchmark does not require the full application and associated licensing to be installed on the system under test, simplifying set-up, running and results reporting.

There have been reports of file corruption when using download accelerators/managers; please check the file size of your download on disk against the file sizes posted here, or use the MD5 checksums.
UPDATE (February 25, 2015): SPECviewperf 12.0.2 was released on February 25, 2015. It extends graphics performance measurement from physical to virtualized workstation configurations. Results for SPECviewperf 12.0.2 are comparable to those from SPECviewperf 12.0.1, but not to any other previous versions.
SPECviewperf 12 is a worldwide standard for measuring graphics performance based on professional applications. It measures the 3D graphics performance of systems running under the OpenGL and Direct X application programming interfaces. The benchmark does not require the full application and associated licensing to be installed on the system under test, simplifying set-up, running and results reporting.

Benchmarks marked as available via "FTP Download" are free to download and use. Benchmarks with a "Purchase" link will redirect you to SWREG in order to purchase a license and download the software.
NOTE: The SPECapc benchmarks provide only the performance testing software. They do not include the actual applications, which are the intellectual property of their respective software vendors (e.g. SPECapc for 3ds Max 2015 does not include a copy of 3ds Max 2015 software).
SPECapcSM for 3ds Max 2015™
SPECapc for 3ds Max 2015 is performance evaluation software for vendors and users of computing systems running 3ds Max 2015 3D animation software. It is designed to run on Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit platforms. The benchmark includes 48 tests exercising the latest features in 3ds Max 2015. Users must have a current version of 3ds Max 2015 with Service Pack 1 applied to run the benchmark.
SPECapcSM for Maya® 2012
SPECapcSM for PTC® Creo® 3.0
SPECapcSM for Siemens NX 8.5
The benchmark must be run with Siemens PLM NX 8.5, Maintenance Release 184.108.40.206 (not included).
SPECapcSM for SolidWorks 2015
A fully licensed or trial version of SolidWorks 2015 Service Pack 2 or greater is required to run the benchmark. SolidWorks feature enhancements such as RealView and OIT are baked into the application and support for new graphics hardware is added via service packs. This is the reason that SPECapc has deviated from its norm of requiring just one specific service pack when running the benchmark. Please be aware that performance might differ between service packs. SolidWorks 2015 does not support the use of OIT transparency for all graphics hardware, and will instead use an older style transparency for these cases, so all results might not be directly comparable.
SPECapc requests that users review the setup instructions before running this benchmark. The group recommends resetting application settings back to default and then following the setup instructions to ensure users have the proper settings before running the benchmark. The default application settings need to be altered for PhotoView360 for the CPU tests to run and display properly. The run rules are included in the benchmark package, and have details about the requirements for running the benchmark.
