by on26 June 2013

Android, iOS and even Windows RT

Futuremark’s PCMark benchmark suite is going mobile. The Finnish developer announced Tuesday that it is working on PCMark software for Android, iOS and Windows RT platforms. It also called on hardware makers to join the development.

"We take great pride in working with the top technology companies to create the best benchmarks for consumers, industry and press," said Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark CEO. "After shaking up the mobile landscape with 3DMark we're looking forward to doing the same with a new PCMark benchmark for Android, iOS and Windows RT."

Like its desktop counterpart, PCMark for mobile platforms will feature benchmark tests based on common use scenarios, focusing on the activities and tasks that smartphone and tablet owners perform every day. It will also provide a view of real-world system performance and power efficiency.

However, it’s still under development and it is unclear when we’ll see PCMark on app stores.
