Performance

The TerreSculpter performance tests are using the Benchmark tool integrated into the software.

The benchmarks were run on a variety of computer systems using TerreSculptor Pro 1.0.

Each system hardware is listed along with its Windows Vista or Windows 7 Experience Index value where applicable.

Notes

  • The listed systems are ordered from slowest to fastest performance.
  • With NVidia video adapter equipped systems the NVidia Control Panel setting for Vertical Sync may not turn off vsync for OpenGL even if it is set to Force Off. This results in the Benchmark locked at the vsync of the monitor, typically 60Hz. To fix this in TerreSculptor set the System Option for Vertical Sync to VSync Off instead of the default setting of Adapter Default.
  • The OpenGL 3D renderer in TerreSculptor performs drawcalls of geometry batches for each frame. Because of this method of data transfer between the CPU and GPU, the performance of the motherboard PCIe interface is as important as the performance of the video adapter GPU. Therefore a system with faster CPU, FSB and NB to the PCIe will outperform one with slower CPU, FSB, and NB, even with the identical video adapter. The majority of the data in each drawcall is vertex buffers followed by display list updates.
  • TerreSculptor does not use any of the few workstation specific OpenGL calls, therefore the HD/GTX gaming video adapters will typically outperform the FireGL/Quadro workstation graphics cards.
