We are no strangers to benchmark apps here at Android Community, as it's one of many different ways we test performance and battery life for powerful smartphones and tablets. One group many might not be as familiar with is FutureMark and their extremely popular PC suite of benchmark apps. Recently they've announced their brand new program simply called 3DMark, and it will be the ultimate cross-platform mobile benchmark application for Android and iOS.
Oh man, this is awesome news for enthusiast and gamers alike in the world of Android. We have many benchmark applications such as Quadrant or CF Bench and what not for Android that tests overall performance but today I've now learned the best of the best in the benchmark business, FutureMark, will be coming soon to Android phones and tablets early 2012. I've used FutureMark 3DMark 06, Vantage and even 11 on my PC for years to test gaming and overall performance and I'm happy to announce this is coming soon for Android.
