Thanks for the super fast reply. Unfortunately It didn't make it clearer. I have uploaded the file and saved it in a new project folder. It is the procedure afterwards that I find unclear.
For the file open test your instructions from the guide:
6: Right-click on the test file and select "open" and start the STOPWATCH at the same time.
It sounds from like I should do:
right-click on the downloaded file in the computer download folder and click run. This automatically opens a new instance of Fusion360 and, on my system takes about 30 seconds. I'll call it method 1.
But don't you mean that I should; with Fusion360 already open,go to the Fusion360 file menu select the file that I previously uploaded, select it, and click on 'open'? This takes my system about 14 seconds. I can not right click on it. I'll call it method 2.
Which method are you asking us to use? When I look at the results in the tables don't think I am alone because some results do not correlate well to the systems. For example this guy:
Ryzen 9 3900X
Titan Xp 12GB
He has one of the best systems on the table and his render time shows this, but the file open time is 24secs like he is doing it with what I have called method 1, whilst most people with this processor are doing it with method 2 and getting 10 seconds.
Well I am sure you have better things to do, but if you can clarify that would be great - but you might need to do it for everybody so that the table can be corrected.
When adding a setup; Intel graphics are not available if I select 'desktop' in system type, but I have a desktop with Intel graphics!
I still cannot see the i3-10320 Intel processor in any list. I have closed page, logged out and back in etc, but I can't see it anywhere, in fact the most recent i3 processor I can see in the list is the 8350k which appears twice.
I think it might be useful to ask people how much RAM is being used by the system not just how much is installed so that we can judge what is useful - for example I have 32gb of brand new 3200 ddr4 and only 13gb is being used during the render ( so maybe 16 would have been enough).
Also the orbit test should probably ask what resolution screen we are running so that the comparison is informative. I am running a 50" 4K with my poor little Intel UHD 630 I get screen refresh 30Hz and only 26fps in the test. But if I run at 1920x1080 I get 60Hz refresh rate and 40fps in the test. So in order to compare things from your table we need to know these details.
I will now go and find a graphics card!!
