PerformanceTest™ Mobile is currently under BETA testing, please report any feedback to email@example.com. Thank you. Results may be PURGED at anytime without noticed.
PassMark Software, the leader in PC benchmarks, now brings you benchmarks for mobile devices. Fast, easy to use, mobile device speed testing and benchmarking. PassMark PerformanceTest™ Mobile allows you to objectively benchmark a mobile device using a variety of different speed tests and compare the results to others.
*Find out if your device is performing at its best. *Compare the performance of your device to similar devices online at http://www.mobilebenchmark.net. *Measure the effect of configuration changes and upgrades. *Make objective independent measurements on which to base your purchasing decision.
Seventeen standard benchmark tests are available in four test suites (with more to come...)
Test Suites: *CPU Tests - Mathematical operations, compression, encryption and more *Disk Tests - Reading and writing files to internal and external storage *Memory Tests - Read and Write tests *2D Graphics Tests - Simple & Complex Vectors and image rendering and filters tests *3D Graphics Tests - Simple bouncing ball test and a more complex scene.
I tried this on a couple of my PC Folding@Home machines (all PC's OEM running Core i7 CPU's heavily overclocked--58%,55% etc, big video cards, plus my office server/personal PC which runs a Core i7 970 6-Core CPU @ 34% OC), for comparison tests on each machine, plus performance data to compare with 3DMark 11, 3DMark '06, and 3DMark Vantage.
These are kindof legacy machines in that they were all built in 2009-10 and have what was then SOP performance parts, plus my extra fine-tuning on the OC's for both video cards, SLI setups, and the CPUs themselves. I was interested in the PPT because of good reviews online, plus my sponsor EVGA could always use comparative data to see what 24/7 FAHome use does to parts and piece, over time, and especially at RMA time should I ever have any replacements needing fixing--and I have had EVGA fix virtually all my video cards, motherboards but for one Classified E760 board which seems immune to all scenarios and bad things happening to computers overall...it is bulletproof after 4+ years of working with it.
On the test itself: it quickly sets benchmark data for any system chosen to wit: Thirty-two standard benchmark tests are available in five test suites plus there are seven advanced testing windows for custom benchmarking.
Standard test suites
CPU tests Mathematical operations, compression, encryption, SSE, 3DNow! instructions and more 2D graphics tests Drawing lines, bitmaps, fonts, text, and GUI elements 3D graphics tests Simple to complex DirectX 3D graphics and animations Disk tests Reading, writing and seeking within disk files Memory tests Allocating and accessing memory speed and efficiency
I found the suites to be aok for most testing procedures on graphix cards, CPUs, board voltages and references in the benchmark section itself, but the configuration suites were more my cup of tea. I thought the base testing regimes were adequate for a quick benchmark test, but you have to go to Burn-In Test 7, LinX Linpack CPU and RAM benchmark tests, and PRIME95 plus the newer system analysis tools such as SiSoftware Sandra, Novabench, and the not so free paid SiSoftware Sandra test regimens to really get a close, detailed look at virtually each and every component and system with a given PC, or generate an overall benchmark that includes *everything* possible, to most things, to specifics.
It being made by FutureMark also (makers of the 3DMArk suites, Vantage, and others), the Passmark software is good at what it does, it just might not be detailed enough for those of us who are more experienced/and/or looking to benchmark a specific part or piece, from PSU's to motherboard voltages to CPU, graphix, or storage including SSDs, to really get at the meat of componentry.
As the headline suggests, Passmark's tests are good, aok fine in fact, but nothing of import save for the overall test suites in many flavors will surpass the more detailed, comparative-scaled, overclocking-specific tests I just listed above. I like it, but then again I wouldn't use it for *everything* or depend on it 100% as a benchmark tool Al Supremo!
Bit confusing, and doesn't let me select which devices to compare mine to. Instead, it shows the same subset of other devices after each run. Would be helpful if it would keep the last test results, or last several sets of results, so that changes to my device can be compared (fresh boot, different number of background services, different SD Card installed). Overall, the PassMark website is much more flexible, and the app should make it easier to lookup you past scores in the app and on the site.
I use Passmark for evaluating my PC hardware and planning upgrades, so it was a natural fit for me to use the Passmark android app to check out my phone and Kindle Fire. Easy to use and you can compare your results with those of other devices.
If you really want to know how your device performs and compares to others, this is the app. There are a lot of benchmark apps out there and some of them very good. PassMark has long been an industry standard for performance measurement on PCs, Disk Drives, Video Cards, etc. Now that same high standard of measurement has been adapted to mobile devices. If you really want to see how your device stacks up, try this one.
