(2) (GPC Group) Originally the Graphics Performance Characterization committee of the NCGA, the GPC Group is now part of Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) and oversees the following graphics performance benchmarks: APC, MBC, OPC, PLB and XPC. APC tests applications, MBC tests multimedia, OPC tests OpenGL, XPC tests X Window, and PLB tests wireframe and surface modeling. See APC, MBC, OPC, XPC, PLB and SPEC.
