Futuremark, known for its benchmarking tools for the PC, is bringing its 3DMark app to the Android platform. The company plans to offer gaming performance benchmarking to Android tablets at some point in 2012. The company, in an effort to make its app the de facto benchmarking standard for the platform, has invited developers to assist in its creation, from the initial details to the finished result.
Futuremark plans on creating an app that will measure gaming performance on Android tablets using rendering, CPU, and physics tests. It also plans using real-time graphics created with the OpenGL ES API as part of its benchmarking process. Comparison results with other tablets and Windows 8 devices will be available online.
based Futuremark began offering tools for benchmarking PC gaming hardware since 1998. In addition to hardware, the company also offers browser benchmarking.
