Code:
for(int r=1; r<=1000; r++)
	setloc(createinstance(node("/Processor",library()),model()),uniform(-100,100),uniform(-100,100),0);
Execute that and then zoom, pan, and rotate the model around. It should be smooth. If it isn't, then you could probably be getting better performance on a different graphics card or different drivers.

You can use FRAPS to quantify the performance if you want. You can also mess around with how many processors you create and how big the 3d View is.

If a few thousand processors slow the 3d view down enough to irritate you when working, then you might want to consider a different graphics card.

This isn't the most scientific test, but I've seen some mediocre geforce and radeon cards outperform certain quadros in this simple test. The graphics card drivers can also make a big difference on this simple test.
