Benchmark 3.0

GPU fans draw very little power compared to the GPU itself.  Optimus (for nvidia gpus) is a multiplexer setup to switch between dedicated GPU and integrated GPUs.  When switching to discrete it only operates using the discrete GPU.  Now, if Mastercam is using the GPU to compute anything this won't, or shouldn't, matter as optimus in the drivers will automatically use the discrete GPU for calculations when called on.  

Source?

Since the utilisation on the gpu is only a few % that would suprise me, I was guessing the cooling system would be the biggest culprit. Especially on my desktop with a fan that sounds like a helicopter starting up! 🤣

If I'm testing a PC running MC2022, should I save the file as a 2022 file first?  I just bumped up from 32 to 64gb of RAM and wanted to run the benchmark again.

 

For some reason I'm getting times of like 11-12 minutes.  Prior to the new RAM I was getting 4:40.  Not sure what's going on!

The 12 series Intels are really killing this file. After only seeing small incremental improvements over the last 5-6 releases, this is very good news!

I remember crunching a flowline for a guitar neck on a 266MHZ Pentium in the 90's.  Took about half an hour.  I'd set the stepover and tolerance way loose to test and adjust things until I liked how it looked, then crank it down and crunch it.  Now I figure somethings up if it takes more than a few seconds.

 

And I did walk uphill both ways barefoot in the snow...

 

And I liked it.

Anyone have issues with 2023 not running the Benchmark file?  I'm getting a new PC today and I wanted to compare old vs new, but I'm not able to regen the last toolpath.  

All good here. I ran it on 2023 when it first came out and just now with Update 2 installed, no issues on either.

The last op, I think its usually op 3 to finish last, typically does take a little longer than the rest to finish. Maybe it was still chugging away?

Just got a new laptop, and the benchmark time isn't what I was expecting.  Anyone have an idea where I could be lagging?

I'm getting a time of 3.98 minutes.  I feel like this should do better.  Am I expecting too much?

Make sure to open the Options in the Multi-Threading Manager (! button) and set the threads and default priority. For your system you could max out threads at 24 and priority should probably be set to High.

Is your switchable graphics disabled on the BIOS? It could be running on the On-Board graphics card vs the Nvidia card.

Tried that.  Thank you.  Not sure what the deal is.  I've gotten drastically different times from about 2.5 minutes to over 4 minutes.

I haven't messed with the bios, but I dedicated it to MC in the graphics settings.  Should I do it in BIOS as well?

Run the file again with the Task Manager - Performance open and see if the Nvidia GPU registers any demand while running. If it doesn't shown any demand it is likely running from the On-Board video card.

It reached about 10% for a split second.  Most of the time there was no demand though.
