3DMark for Android will push OpenGL ES2.0 to the limit to measure gaming performance
Acer, Intel, Qualcomm and SingTel-Optus have joined Futuremark’s Benchmark Development Program to create a new 3DMark gaming benchmark for Android devices.
The Futuremark Benchmark Development Program aims to create industry standard benchmarks for performance measurement. 3DMark for Google’s Android platform which is expected to be released later this year.
Members of the programme include AMD, Imagination Technologies, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Samsung and many other companies.
3DMark is a tool used by gamers, hardware review sites and manufacturers to measure PC gaming performance.
Futuremark CEO Jukka Makinen said, "As we bring 3DMark to a new OS for the first time, 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."
3DMark for Android will use graphics rendering, CPU and physics tests with real-time graphics that will push OpenGL ES2.0 to the limit to measure gaming performance. It is expected to be released later this year.
Acer RD Center ADC BU AVP Wason Shyu said the company will use 3DMark to analyse performance in an objective and scientific manner.
"This assists in providing our customers with products of the very highest quality that are ready for the most demanding tasks, whether it is exacting physics computations or the purest video game experiences," Shyu said.
