Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v3 Product Family

The Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family-based workstation delivers visual performance for graphics-intensive applications.

SPECapc* for PTC Creo* 2.0

SPECapc* for PTC Creo* 2.0 provides eight workflows that exercise all aspects of system performance when running the popular application. Composite scores are generated for graphics, shaded graphics, wireframe graphics, CPU, and I/O performance. Application workflows for the world car model pictured below include world car graphics, world car regeneration, world car retessellation, world car mass properties, world car load/erase/load, world car body graphics, Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES) import and export, and engine new drawing.

PTC contributed the model, and SPECapc tested and prepared the benchmark, making maximum use of new functionality in Creo 2.0.

Intel estimated as of April 2014

Product and Performance Information


Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to


Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.


Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See for details.


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel.

Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
