Performance Benchmark Methodology

I am benchmarking the performance of Microstation on a few different Hardware/Video Card/OS configurations.  I am hoping there is a standard methodology or tool that is frequently used in the CADD community.


Perhaps Bentley has such a tool.

Please share you thoughts and experiences.



  • was created primarily to gauge video card performance, but it is inherently affected by other aspects of a computer, including CPU and RAM performance; it may be a good starting point for you. Note that this test makes no attempt to simulate user interaction with MicroStation, and thus is not a good measure of using any tools or otherwise running interactive sessions. However, higher scores on this test should directly correlate to better overall performance of MicroStation (on a relative level).
