3DMark for Android Soon to Come?
Futuremark has been pretty much a staple when it comes to benchmarks for PC systems. However, it has just announced that it is already working with Acer, Intel, Qualcomm and SingTel-Optus to create a brand new 3DMark application to benchmark Android-based tablets and smartphones.
Jukka Mäkinen, CEO of Futuremark commented that, "For more than ten years we have worked with the world's leading PC hardware manufacturers to create 3DMark and PCMark. As a result, Futuremark benchmarks are the industry standard for PC performance measurement used by hundreds of press publications and millions of end-users. As we bring 3DMark to Android, we are excited to expand our cooperation to include Acer, Intel, Qualcomm and SingTel-Optus, technology leaders who will bring unparalleled insight, experience and vision to the development of 3DMark for Android."
This new benchmark application is slated to be launched later this year and will measure the performance of the devices using graphics rendering, CPU and physics tests with stunning real-time graphics that will push OpenGL ES2.0 to the limit.
