Computer Benchmarking/Performance for Revit - AUbench 2011  

All, here is the AUbench 2011 that I found while beta testing.  Also see my post on AUbench 2010 for more information.  I'll also copy that information below.

 ttached you'll find a zip file called AUBench.  I actually came accross this while Beta testing, and I'm not sure who the original credit goes to for this, but the Readme file says "Phil" from architecture.blogspot.com

With that said, this will help you compare benchmarks of your machines running Revit 2011 (all flavors).

I will post my benchmarks for Revit 2011 soon.  Everyone else feel free to post theirs to this Thread/Entry.

Here are the Important Things to note when running the benchmark:

1)  Hardware Acceleration (HA) is not enabled during journal playback by default. To enable HA during playback, no matter the current setting, add the following line to the journal after Set Jrn = CrsJournalScript 

Jrn.Directive "DebugMode" , "GfxUseDx9AccelerationOnPlay" , 1
 
2)  You need to rename the "AUBench2011" folder to just "AUBench" and save it to your local C:/ drive, otherwise you will have to change paths in the .bat file.
 
3)  You need to make sure and change the path of your default Revit template (the out of the box template) in the journal file.  See this post.
 
4)  Also, to ensure that this works properly, n the Revit.ini, make sure that the line "AllowPressAndDrag" is set to =1

5) Please Read the "readme.txt" file that was in the package I posted and make sure you have done everything listed in the file.

Notably, for international users, you have to change your Revit.ini file language default to english (ENU) for AUbench to work properly.

 

I hope all that makes sense.  Let me know if you have any questions.  It's really easy to use once you get the hang of it.  Just a few settings to check before you start to make sure it doesn't error out.
 
Please post your results!

Want to significantly increase system performance?  Upgrade the processor.

We ran the test on some older systems that we had lying around.  Most were Dells.  The attached has a comparison of the results.  Here’s a summary:

  • Increased processor = increased speed
  • Increased RAM doesn’t really help with speed (the gut says it probably helps with large files)
  • Upgrade OS to 64 bit (with increased RAM) does help
  • Higher end graphics cards just don’t help at all.
  • We didn’t test better hard drives (the gut feels that this would also help with large files)

Wow, this is really great information!...The excel file is well laid out and easy to read!

A few things I would mention...

1) Was the speed of the RAM in your machines all the same...I would imagine (though I haven't tested it), that the speed of the RAM (800 mhz dual channel vs 1333 mhz triple channel, for example) would make a pretty big difference.  You are right, the amount will only make a difference on large files, which I have experienced myself.

2)  The video card doesn't really help unless you are in 3D views.  I did some of my own testing (stop watch style) on some different machines just to see how fast a complex 3D view would open up.  I found that the amount of Video RAM on board the graphics card makes a big difference in how large a 3D view can regenerate.  Obviously the speed of the card in this same arena would matter too.

Anyhow, this is really great info!  Thanks for the post!

Here are some benchmarks I ran on my machine at work in Revit 2011.  I have some benchmarks running on a core i7 machine as well that I will be posting soon.  Remember 2 things:

1)  Even though it is essentially the same benchmark tool, I don't think comparing Revit 2010 benchmark numbers to Revit 2011 Benchmark numbers (even on the exact same machine) is apples to apples.  I would look to compare machines benchmarked on the same version or Revit to see the performance differences.

Computer Specs:

Dell Precision T5400
(2) Intel Xeon E5430 @ 2.66 Ghz
16 GB of 667 Mhz DDR2 RAM
Nivida Quadro FX 3700
10,000 RPM Velociraptor SATA HDD

Here is another.  Note this machine was bought more specifically for rendering, not specifically for Revit. The difference in the specs between the machine I posted above and this one is tremendous, just not really seen in the Revit benchmark utility.  IMO if you are looking to get really great speeds, get the below configuration, but instead get you the fastest Quad Core i7 processor you can get/afford.  

Computer Specs:

 

Dell Precision T7500
Intel Xeon E5430 @ 2.66 Ghz (Hyperthreaded 6 core processor - 12 virtual cores)

 Nice, thanks for the info.  Do you know the CPU speeds on those overclock settings?  It's an interesting comparison to the post scobeck made above to his components.  I would say, kappy, your bottleneck is probably your HDD...I would try to get a Solid State Drvie (SSD) if you can, or at least a 10,000 RPM Raptor drive.  While this component won't make huge leaps, when you have the speed and RAM amounts you have, SSD will definetely help a little.

Kappy, do you know the frequency of your RAM also?

Scobeck, you said "RAM:  12GB, DDR3, 200MHz (6x2GB)"

...did you mean "2000mhz"??  If so, that's really fast!!!

Sorry about that miskey, I did mean 2000MHz.

One thing about the RAM speed is that it is only running at 1704MHz with my current overclock of 3.91GHz, which is what I ran the benchmark at.  There is definatly enough headroom to get the RAM to run faster, but I can't get the system to run stable with RAM in all 6 DIMMS. 

I have a test system at home with a slightly different configuration.  That system has 12GB of 1600MHz RAM, but in 3 DIMMS (3x4GB), and a Core i7 960.  Is is overclocked to 4.2GHz with the RAM running at 1704MHZ.  The benchmark test for that machine is only 6 seconds faster than my work system.

Sweet benchamrk results and nice system configurations. 

Is your hard drive SATA 3.0 or SATA 6.0?

 The cpu-speed on those overclocks should be what they state i think, so

"Crazy 4.00" = 4.0 GHz

"Crazy 4.20" = 4.2 GHz

 

Yeah, a SSD might be something to add, but as we work with all our files on our server, will the SSD still increase Revit performance? (In other ways than startup etc)

 

My ram is specced as 1600MHz, but it's being run a bit slower, i'm not 100% sure at what speed at the moment. Somewhere around 1300MHz i think.

 

I'm not really sure about if it's SATA 3.0 or 6.0 atm to be honest, is there any clever way to view this in windows?

 

Btw, Scobeck how do you verify stability of your system? What stress programs do you use and how long u run them etc?

 Yeah, as far as the SSD goes, don't you use local files on your local machine?...or are all your project one person jobs?

If you are using locals files with a central file on the server, than yeah, all of the work is still happening locally, until you save to central.  Like I said, the Processor and RAM are the two main items, then the graphics card, and then the hard drive, but I considering you have, what I would consider, pretty awesome specs for your RAM and processor, it seems like a 7200 RPM HDD may bottleneck the rest of your system, depending on what you are doing.  I say that also in regard to the fact that, even though in my office I work in Revit on my machine, it was also built to be used at night on a Render farm, and I also use Photoshop, AutoCAD, etc.  So a good performing SSD I think would help your overall experience, not just/so much Revit.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

 

Test Results:

6       Opening and loading custom template
9       Creating the floor levels and grids
26     Creating a group of walls and doors
44     Modifying the group by adding a curtain wall
21     Creating the exterior curtain wall
10     Creating the sections
11     Changing the curtain wall panel type
36     Create 3D view and render
31     Export all views

  Hi All,

 

This is my first post here :)

I've done the benchmark test.

My Computer Specs:

OS: Win 7 Ultimate

Motherboard: Gigabyte P55-UD3L

CPU: Intel i5 650 @ 3,20 GHz

RAM: KINGMAX 8 GB (2x4GB) DDR3 @ 1333 MHz

Graphics Card: NVidia Quadro 600

HDD: SAMSUNG HD103SJ 1000 GB, 32 MB cache

Here are the results:

opening and loading the custom template: 6

creating the floors levels and grids: 10

creating a group of walls and doors: 29

modifying the group by adding a curtain wall: 47

 creating the exterior curtain wall: 24

creating the sections: 12

changing the curtain wall panel type: 11

create 3d view and render: 46

export all views: 36

Total: 221
 
I don't have any problem using the 3D features, but when I want to use e.g the detail line tool in 2D or editing a boundary of a slab, the Revit is lagging. I experienced this issue both in Revit MEP & Architecture 2011.
Does anybody know how to increase this performances, or was happended with anybody?
 
Thanks

I experienced the same problem. I noticed that the Revit.ini file for Structural does not have this entry "[Selection] AllowPressAndDrag=1". I added it in and still couldn’t get it to work. I also have Revit Arch. and it worked perfectly. It’s possible that the tool is not made for Structural or more edits to the Revit.ini & Journal file may be needed.

We just picked up a Dell with the following specs. After testing and not getting anything better than 225. I plan to switch out the motherboard to EVGA SLI3 to OC it to 3.5. I’m sure ill need better OC'ing Ram and PSU 800W should work. My goal is under 200 for 3 new workstation we need in our office. If that still doesn’t work then i7 six core extreme edition should do the trick.

E-pro,

I think the reason you get the error in Revit structure is that the Benchmark utility was written as a journal file for Revit Architecture, and since some of the commands in Revit Arch. don't exist in Revit Structure, it is erroring out.  That's my most logical guess at the issue.

Comparitively speaking, you should be able to get a decent idea of performance using Revit architecture as the benchmark.

We use Revit MEP I would really like to create a benchmark for MEP (drawing ducts , air terminals, systems, etc.).  Can someone point me in the direction of a tutorial or website that might help me get to where I want to be?  I think I could muddle through and eventually get there but some direction would be great.

Thanks for this benchmark. But I have a little problem with it. I have Revit architecture with license for Czech Republic and if I change language from CSY to ENU in revit.ini, Revit switchs to DEMO. I can`t pass the last test, because in DEMO Revit can`t  print and save............its a bad luck :-(.

This is my computer specs:

Hi   First post here

Have an issue with time taken to open a work file in Autodesk 2012 . Does anyone know of any performance benchmark testing for the 2012 version. Have tried the AU bench 2011 but it failed to run

 

Specs are

I7 3GHZ CPU.. 16gb ddr3 , 250gb hdd 7200, 1gb Radeon 5500 display

Gigabyte x58 skt 1366.. running windows 7 x64 Professional

Specs seem fine. What size of file are you trying to open & How much free space do you have on your HDD because 250 seems low. Is this on a laptop? or desktop?

Thanks Bizz3d

Desktop custom build specially for Revit 2011

Graphics card is a Radeon HD5500 1GB PCI-EXwhich is not listed in the Revit specifications sheet but other ATI Radeon cards are.

HDD has only used 15gb so plenty space. It is a customer computer of mine and as best I understand it he has the files stored on a usb data raveller and opens it from there.

The file size is approx 16.5mb and there are 70 drawing files within the project.

Would I be correct in saying that if transferred the file to the hard drive it would open quicker or is it a video card issue.

Cheers

Ron

Have your client move the files to the HDD and see if that helps.

As for the GPU I've never had good luck with ATI. I built many Revit stations and always use Nvidia. Revit does not use the full power of GPU so it doesn't matter if its a workstation card or not but something about ATI cards that give me problems with Revit.

In our office we use GTX 460 up to 580 and Quadro 4000 workstation cards. All work very well with our 100mb+ size files

At home I use a HP MyBook 1TB (USB 2.0) and keep all my developing files and test projects on it. I don't have any problem opening up 50mb - 150mb files

gtx460 and gtx580 is gameng graphic cards.  Quadro 4000 is professional graphic card and this card is 5..6times more expensive than gtx460.

What is the performance difference between these 2 cards? Is Quadro 4000 5..6times faster than gtx series gaming cards?

QUADRO FX 580 is an interesting graphic card too. For the same price as gtx460. I think so.. Your comments?

For Revit its not worth the expense. Most of the systems I built in our office are running GTX cards. AUGI benchmark tool showed less than 5% gain over GTX after 10 runs. Your money is better spent on top of the line Intel CPU and load up with fast ram.

If you plan to render with 3DS, Maya, etc. Then I highly recommend the Quadro

Fast multicore CPU and a lot of fast RAM is more important than Quadro VGA for Revit?

About cpu: dualcore is enough, or better is quadcore. How about overclocking? i5 2500K works great on 5.0Ghz.

About RAM: 4 or 8Gb? Or maybe 16? Where is the boarder when i can feel the difference between one or other setup?

This is a good conversation.  Here's my take:

Go with GeForce cards unless you are using MAX A LOT.  Even then, I don't know many people justify spending that much on a quadro card.  Here's what I mean.  We were working with machines that had quadro 3700 in them.  They had like 512 MB of RAM...those cards were like 2K by themself or something insane like that.  We got some new machines with middle-high end GeForce cards with like 2 GB of RAM on board....so it's hard to compare apples to apples.  I mean sure, if you can drop 4K on just a high end Quadro card, then great, I'm sure you will see a performance increase over a comparable high end GeForce card, but most people can't compare like that, they compare dollars.  And if you have a 700 dollar budget for a graphics card, a high end desktop/gaming GeForce card is much better in the long run than a Quadro card, especially for Revit which utilizes only Direct 3D now anyway.

For the actual System RAM, I would look at getting as much as you can afford.  I would think 8GB minimum if you are using Revit a lot, through construction documents.  Models can get pretty big.

For the CPU, it depends for me.  Are you doing a lot of rendering?  If so, a slower per cycle Quad Core would be better than a faster dual core.  If you aren't doing as much rendering, get as fast a cycle processor as you can afford.  Overclocking is great as long as it's stable and you are ok with the additional wear in may cause on your hardware.  So if I had a choice between a 3.4ghz core i5 and a 2.8ghz core i7, I would probably go with the core i7 if I was doing a lot of rendering and the core i5 if I wasn't.  Revit does use a some mulithreading, but not as much as I would like, so you don't see a huge usage of 4 hyperthreaded cores the majority of the time.  A hyperthreaded dual core i5 chip (4 virtual cores) at a faster clock speed would serve you well.

There is one caviat to all of this.  The motherboard and RAM frequency support.  I am a big believer in a lot of FAST RAM.  Many of the LGA 1156 boards that support i3 and i5 processors don't support the super fast RAM and some don't support triple channel memory.  Just keep that in mind.

I would say, in order of priority, spend money on the CPU first, while maintaining a bear min. 6 GB or RAM (for triple channel) or 4 GB of RAM (for dual channel).  Next, upgrade your RAM to 8 or 12 GB.  Then see what you have left for graphics card.  I would get a graphics card with at least 1GB of onboard RAM if you can.  512mb would be bear min. in my opinion, especially for larger models.  It's also not just the RAM that matters on these cards, as the actually speed of the RAM, number of stream processors, and core clock speeds.  You get what you pay for, so do some research.  Usually, any of your newer, higher end GTX model GeForce cards will serve you well.

Hope this helps.

So reading your post, I was wondering... What's your take on SLI or Crossfire with an I7 setup. Would it help revit run even faster, or would Revit not even use it?

I have never gotten to actually test a SLI or crossfire rig, but I can see that in a 3D view, while orbiting, or changing visual styles, that Revit could/would go faster with the more power you throw at it.

The core i7 itself won't matter as much as the actual running frequency of the processor.  So it won't matter much if it's a core i5 3ghz vs. a core i7 3ghz (assuming the core i5 has 4 virtual cores and the i7 has 8).  Where the i7 will come into play some if your multitasking with other application as well as a few of the areas in Revit that have multithreaded capabilities.

I would think, unless you have a massive model, a single, high end graphics card with like 1.5 or 2 GB of onboard RAM would be absolutely plenty.  However, again, we are talking about 2 graphics cards processing 3D model changes when orbiting, so if you do a lot in a 3D view, this could certainly be an idea to test/entertain.

Hope this helps, and welcome to your first post ; )

Hey found this thread as I thought my new work computers were quite good specs but may benefit from adding an 80-160 Gb SSD (Not included in test).  Could anyone tell me if it would be worth the $300 upgrade?  My major problem is the work files are medium-large and are taking forever to load and are slowly killing me!

 

Specs:

Dell Vostro 460

Intel core i7 2600 CPU @ 3.4 ghz

16 Gb Ram

AMD Radeon HD 6600 series

64 Bit Windows 7

 

 

Results:

8  opening and loading the custom template
12  creating the floors levels and grids.  
26  creating a group of walls and doors  
45  modifying the group by adding a curtain wall
18  creating the exterior curtain wall  
13  creating the sections    
8  changing the curtain wall panel type  
25 create 3d view and render    
22 export all views      
177 TOTAL        

 

Thanx for the tools guys!

Hi, I would advise that you forget SATA 3 and look at one of the specialist SSDs that go on the PCI express bus like the OCZ Revo-Drive. I put one of these into my box and was astounded by the read and write speeds, delivers up to 120,000 IOPS and bandwidth over 900MB/s. Best upgrade I have ever done.

Word of warning though, Windows 7 has a number of power saving options on the PCI bus which all have to be turned off for the drive to work properly. Hope that helps.

I´ve read all  the posts until now, and it makes me believe that the difference between configurations doesn't matter at all. The best opition is to sit and wait autodesk make it lighter. it´s not a hardware subject, spending money in upgrades now seems to not be very wise. I wish autodesk start to think about that.

Hi,

Thanks for sharing this tool and your results.

I was wondering whether there is a minimum threshold that defines whether the machine spec is acceptable or not for typical Revit users.

i.e., I understand that having a lower time for each operation below => better performance. However is there any guidance on the minimum acceptable time for each operation below in order for Revit to really be usable on the system.

Thanks
