Hello,

Can you please add Intel Core i7 9700F & GEFORCE RTX 2060 SUPER to the benchmark table? Thank you!

Hello, thank you so much for your efforts. Very helpful, and also very selfless, which is rare and appreciated.

I'd like to be able to put in my i3-10320 Intel processor and my UHD 630 Intel graphics please.

Also a question about the file opening test. I am a little unclear about how you want us to open the file for the actual test. I understand that we open it once by right-clicking on the downloaded unpacked file and choosing open, then we save it in F360. But now it becomes a little unclear. Do I close F360 and again right click on the file on my desktop and select open? Or do I leave F360 open and simply chose to open a file from the dropdown menu and select the test file previously saved? I'm sorry for being unsure, but it makes quite a difference! 32 secs when clicking in the unpacked file on desktop vs 13.5 secs when opening the file within F360... This whole thing you have created is only useful if we are sure to compare like for like.

Many thanks again,
Tom.

Hey @tomhanman,

I have added the CPU and the GPU is also there.

In regards to the test,

  1. You need to Upload the test file into a folder inside Fusion 360.
  2. The first time you open the file, F360 is going to create a cache file so the next time you open a file it will be faster!
  3. Restart F360.
  4. The second time you open the file is when you measure the time!

Please let me know if you have more questions.

Cheers.

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:

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.

Other things:

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!!

Regards,

Tom.

@tomhanman

You need to upload the file into Fusion and then open it from there, and NOT from a folder on your computer!

Is that what you did?

Yes, as I said, this is how I get my time of 13.5 seconds. (from the folder on my pc it took 32 seconds) But as this is not specified in the instructions not everyone is understanding the nuance of which location of the file to click on, so the table is being populated by data which is unreliable, and eventually misleading.

Another note for the fps test - ask users to calrify the capacity of their screens, because I suspect some of the users are being limited to 60 fps simply because their monitors aren't capable of exceeding that - not because their graphics card is limiting them.

I have used data from the table to choose myself a GTX 1050ti 4gb card, and I hope that will get me to the limit of my 4K screen at 60fps. But I am not at all sure because we don't know the resolutions being run by those providing the data.

As mentioned in my first post I really do appreciate all the effort made to create this space and the information contained within. But as I analyse more and more I feel that a few tweaks might be required to solidify the data presented. I also understand that we all have other things to do. Regards, Tom.
