Does SU run better on Macs? Or is it your RAM? Because... 150 fps... ? Wow...


i'm not sure because i've never used windows for comparison.. there was an export test around here a while ago in which the macs were able to export jpgs at more than twice the size as windows but other than that, i haven't seen anything alluding to SU being better with OS X..
in fact, there are often things i see that work on PCs that i can't do.

MY CONFIG : macbook pro - mid 2009 unibody 15" 4GbRam 512Mo 9600MGT HD500gb 5400rpm - snow leopard 10.6.1
I ve run the cube test with each graphic configuration on the same machine running sketchup pro 7.0, and results are quite surprising :

9400M : 5.336s - 27.4665s (shadows on) -- with SU7.1= 1.228 - 1.229(shadows on)
9600M GT : 5.327s - 27,669s (shadows on) --with SU7.1= 1.324 - 1.225(shadows on)

I've run the same test with my architecture diploma file (40000m2 hotel+parking+many cars+trees and textures = 4mb files)

9400M : 6.572s - 99.579s (shadows on) --with SU7.1= 4.774 - 5.074(shadows on)
9600M GT : 6.601s - 101.156s (shadows on) --with SU7.1= 5.034 -5.225(shadows on)

That confirms my impression, I can't notice any difference between running sketchup with 9400 and with 9600. :( What do u think about that ? Could some mac users confirm these results ?

And 7.1pro version is really impressive. :ecstatic:

Strangely, I was getting 15-16 fps then I turned on shadows and it increased??

New Imac 27 inch as spec'ed here http://store.apple.com/nz/configure/MB9 ... TM3NjczMzI with 8Gb Ram & i7 processor. Running SU 7.1 on Snow Leopard.

Shadows on - (47-53*) frames per second
Shadows off - 22 frames per second**

compared to old G5 PPC Dual 2.3Ghz, with 2.5Gb RAM NVidia GeForce 6600 GPU

Shadows on - 30 frames per second
Shadows off - 14.6 frames per second

and 1st gen Macbook Pro - (ATI Radeon X1600 2Ghz Intel Core Duo, 2Gb Ram Leopard, SU 7.1)

Shadows on - 27.3 frames per second
Shadows off - 9.2 frames per second

Pretty impressive improvement I guess, but can't help wondering what the Mac Pro might be capable of... No software/OpenGL issues yet to report but will post back if I find any....

*Is SU caching something here? Upon repeated testing I'm getting different results (shadows on = same as shadows off & frame rate increases to 53), even after closing SU and reopening Test file... Am I missing something here?

**The results on the Imac back up Jopperman's results with similarly spec'ed Graphics card (512Mb difference on GPU) and RAM but on a different operating system and other hardware specifically CPU...

Stats went up after I went into the NVIDIA control panel and changed the 3d settings to 'Let Application Control' or somesuch.

For reference I just tested my Asus Eeepc running XP and SU7.1.

The test shows it is pretty slow but it all works if you want something portable..




I've opened two very high poly models, and they certainly orbit and zoom quite happily, I imagine any work on them would take forever though.

Anyone try this test with SU8 yet?
I"m interested to see speed compared to 7.1
Thanks,

How come my old dusty machine is performing rather well? / what am I doing "wrong"?
(PC=5.5 years of age, almost retired)

Micromaxx/Medion
AMD Athlon 64/3000+
Clockspeed 2.00GHz 1.5GB
NVIDIA GeForce FX5700

With SU8 pro (didn't test SU7) and testing the original file:
1) nothing changed (hidden geometry and shadows off) => around ~62.7 frames/second
(shadows on didn't seem to matter that much, same results => ~62.5 frames/second)
2)edges+profiles on, hidden geometry (and shadows) displayed => ~35.8 frames/second

~ indicates that I did run the code line multiple times.
After changes to settings like 'hidden geometry' only the first run drops down frame rate.
After that a constant higher rate as stated above.

So much for all the hype about new machines. Are you running on a AGP_ bus also? Try toggling the transparency select on the face styles and see if it makes much difference. It did for me
fussion
It appears you are running too slow for these test conditions. Do you have problems with model display?? Suggest you run the GLview 322.exe and see what type of OpenGL you really have. Also toggle the transparency on the face styles and see if that makes any difference for you. My testing showed the extents of the model play a roll. Make sure to hit zoom extents before running test

Wow, some unusual results here. I've had some discrepancy between Sketchup v.8.0.4811 and Sketchup v.7.1.6860

Under v.7.1.6860 I got:
sketchup_7_1_6860.jpg

But under v.8.0.4811 I got:
sketchup_8_0_4811.jpg

After some troubleshooting, I found that disabling "Enable Transparency" in the Styles window gave this result in v.8.0.4811:
sketchup_8_0_4811_no_trans.jpg

Its unusual, I disabled "Enable Transparency" under 7.1.6860 and there was no noticable difference in the animations performance, but this is different for 8.0.4811. I'm not sure what is going on here but for consistency in results I think the style in the file should be updated to disable the transparency.

Here's my stats:
Mac Pro (1,1) with a modified 8 core x5355 @ 2.66 GHz (2 processors)
16gb DDR2 ECC ram
Ati Radeon HD 5770 (apple version)
SATA II
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
