    ATI nvidia Radeon GForce Quadro FireGL DX vs OGL VideoCard Bench - (City01.max File)

    Hi all, Before Testing the Video Cards, I will like to show you prior test I did some years ago under this link. http://www.evermotion.org/vbulletin/...ad.php?t=54012

    Those were done using old 3DMAX Bench Files, video cards from 2002-2006, you can pull information out of those test, because unluckily many things didn't change that much.

    I'm starting a new test in a New Post for this particular scene called City01, It's a model I did in two hours just to test video card performance with you!



    It's a "Buenos Aires" city portion, it has 2.000.000 vertex, There are just two buildings instanced 1000 times each one, and the city Sidewalk.

    So The First attempt It was intended to be like these

    2 million Vertex
    2000 groups, (each group was a building containing 32 object)
    64000 objects Total.

    but It didn't move at all, I couldn't build neither a Quarter of that Scene, viewport slow down that much I had to try out another technique.
    I found out 3dmax can't handle big quantities of groups and object in the viewport, when you have thousands it gets really slow. So I had to Attach the buildings in one single mesh each one, and performance change a lot. Without attaching the buildings this test would be impossible to make.


    Then I attach Every Building, So Instead of having 2000 groups, we now have 2000 Objects.
    So now this scene is:

    2 million Vertex
    2000 objects.

    This one was the way to go!!!


    Preparing for the TEST:
    -----------------------

    Download the File here (MAX 2008)
    http://www.2shared.com/file/4916332/...ity01-V1d.html the download link is at the button of that web page


    Filling the Table Everybody should use

    TIME:
    Video CARD:
    CPU:
    SO:
    MAX Version:
    System Driver:
    Max Driver:
    Screen Resolution:
    RAM:


    Then Open the File, Select the camera, Scene must be "Smooth and Highlight" (F3 on), "Edged Faces" (F4 on). Ctrl-X to maximize the Viewport, and hit / so the animation begins. Take a Stopwatch and take the time from frame 0 to frame 500.
    I set the Animation for non real time playback, so the camera has to draw frame by frame.
    FPS is useless because it's not constant. It depends on how many polygons are displayed on the viewport at that particular moment, it will give you faster or lower frame rates.

    That's all we are testing on this post.
    For testing other kind of scenes, we will do it on a new Thread.
    We won't test just wireframe, or just shaded, because we already know those test will be faster. The Point is to test the way everybody DRAW, and that way is "Smooth and Highlight + Edge Faces" turned on.


    I'm really willing for you to participate on this!!!
    just like many people participate on CPU Benchmarks, Video Cards are as expensive and important as CPU. It won't take you more than 5 minutes to do it.
    Most of us will really take advantage of this before buying a new Video CARD!!

    Sometimes we spend 1000 u$s and we don't get that much performance compared to a 200u$S video card. I don't believe on Brochures, I just believe on real people experience.
    Let's Begin!!!

    Have Fun

    Hi
    I would like to join the thread/test but my Graphics card (XFX Feforce 9800GT) remains idle in 3ds Max. I checked the Display driver in Customize -> Preferences -> Viewports, and that seems to be ok.: Currently installed driver : Direct3D 9.0 (NVIDIA Gforce 9800GT) The card works fine everywhere else, but it just not kicks in in MAX.

    Any suggestions?
