Benchmark 3.0

Recommended Posts

Just ran the benchmark on my new laptop last night. Using the original metric I got just over 5 minutes, which is almost twice as fast as my desktop I had been using.

Thanks for keeping this Benchmark going. It helped me show my engineers that our computers are good, it's MasterCAM that is slow.

Here are some data points:

Can you please re-upload the benchmark file? I do not seem to be able to download it.

 

Thanks in advance!

Just tried an upload from the first comment in this thread . It looks like it's working.

pullo, the top link on the first post results in a 404 not found error. PKA is correct. We can't download it.

ok I'll report it to gcode. It works for me , but I was also the one who put the link there, deleted the  file  and asked to make the link work again....

I just tested it and it's working for me.

Could this be a setting on the computer's trying to download it.

I've attached the file to this post to see if it will work for the people who aren't able to download it

PC I built for home use circa 2013-2014, it is equally fast to my two work computers, one uses a GTX 1080 and i7 7700 (my main office rig, only pc I have that was off the shelf because we needed a pc asap.) and one uses a Quadro M4000 and i7 4790k (build sitting next to machines).  The Quadro cards perform no different at all in my experience.  My newest work computer has an i7 7700 which is giving roughly equal performance to my home overclocked i7 4770k @ 4.4.

All of my pc's are eerily similar in function.  Regen isn't what ticks me off using cam, I understand the toolpaths are large.  But when it takes 45 seconds to turn on all solids on a layer, or basically any function when files are 50MB or over taking more than a few seconds.  I keep seeing people saying Mastercam uses a lot of ram, but even with 5 instances open etc..I never go past 12GB

Bench was run with all precision's set to .0001 on my home computer 

i7 4770K @ 4.4Ghz  this CPU can run at 4.8 for a few hours but always ends up blue screening

16GB 2 x 8 DDR3 1866 

Asus Maximus 6 Hero

Hyper 212 EVO cooler

Seasonic 650W Gold PSU

Gigabyte GTX 1080 stock clocks

Sandisk Boot SSD 256GB

Samsung 860 EVO 1TB

 

Roughly 5:20  which seems OK for 2013-2014 hardware, what's unfortunate is I really want to upgrade my office rig to

i9 9900K liquid cooled 5Ghz+  Or helium/Ln2 at 10Ghz  :P

Keep the GTX 1080's..doesn't seem like they are the bottleneck (or are they for turning on layers with a lot of solids?)

DDR4 3000+ memory 16GB seems fine to me, I can never hit the limit.

Just ran it on my  pc that was built in 2012. Not great times, but not bad.Capture.thumb.PNG.a2e12f44cecb9ea18805d6f3bc0ff33d.PNG

 

My big slowdown isn't usually with toolpaths it's with stock models. The last job, I had to run it thru verify and save the stl then use that as model for stock model because regening the stock model kept freezing MC (had to use task manager to end process) which for some reason would screw up my 3D mouse forcing me to restart pc once or twice every time MC would freeze. The big problem with this is if I missed something I have to go back and run everything  again which eats up time. I got to the point I would save an stl at every 100 operations and label it so I would have to keep going back to verify so much.

Specking a new machine from a few vendors and usually end up around $3-4,000. Wouldn't mind getting a solid box but all they use are xenon's which don't seem to perform all that well compared to the i series.

An Improvement!!  Nice...

Im curious to see what you all are getting for verify times.

Open up verify and check tool on and stock on and all other visibility options off.  Uncheck all stop conditions.  Set precision and speed sliders all the way up and run the verify.

I got 4:57

We had had very good luck with these machines

 

Boxx Computers S Class

 

If you build your own you can build a machine like this for about 60% of what they are charging

We have about 10 of these of various vintages, from 5 years to 1 year old and have yet to have any kind of failure

I also bought one for myself for home use, but I lowballed the memory and storage and upgraded that myself which saved about a grand

2020 processing times are seriously impressive. I'm still mostly using 2017 but when I do use 2020 it just feels quicker, especially with verify and stock models.
