  20. 20. Generational Performance Gains 2007 - 2012 Generational Performance Comparison Ratio of Intel Xeon E5-1620/E6850 NVIDIA Quadro 2000/FX1700 Running SPECapc for Creo 2 4.00 3.67 Ratio of SPECapc Composite Scores 3.50 3.34 3.05 3.00 Higher is better Xeon E6850/FX1700/8GB System from 2007 2.50 Xeon E5-1620/Quadro2000/8GB System from 2012 Both systems retail around $2,200 2.00 1.54 1.50 1.42 1.00 0.50 0.00 Graphics Composite Shaded Graphics Wireframe Graphics CPU Composite I/O Composite Composite Composite28 2012 LENOVO.

  21. 21. Conclusions  If you have a 5 year old system – For about the same system cost as in 2007 – CPU performance will be 1.5X – GPU performance will be about 3X  CPU Performance has neglible effect on video performance – CPU is not bottlenecking video performance  For ultimate Creo 2 performance – E3-1290V2 CPU – NVIDIA Quadro 4000 GPU – Memory – System memory is dependent on model sizes – Generally I’d recommend 8 GB 1600 MHz ECC – HDD – Again this depends on model sizes – Generally I’d recommend 1 TB 7200 RPM SATA30 2012 LENOVO. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
  22. 22. Conclusions  For cost sensitive performance – E3-1240V2 CPU – NVIDIA Quadro 2000 GPU – Memory – System memory is dependent on model sizes – Generally I’d recommend 6 GB 1600 MHz ECC – HDD – Again this depends on model sizes plus other apps – Generally I’d recommend 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA  For budget performance – Good for basic Creo Parametric 2 designer – Simple models and assemblies – Not using advanced shading view modes – E3-1225V2 with Integrated Intel ® HD Graphics P4000 – 4 GB 1600 MHz ECC – 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA31 2012 LENOVO. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
  23. 23. Conclusions  Other considerations – RAID – Need to move to a system with E5-xxxx CPUs – E3-12xxV2 CPU systems typically only come with 2 HDD bays – Software other than Creo Parametric 2 – May perform substantially better with higher core count CPUs – Finite Element Analysis (FEA) – Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) – CPU based rendering – These apps will perform better with E5-xxxx series CPUs – Ultimate performance obtained with dual socket systems32 2012 LENOVO.
