Benchmark products coming to Symbian based mobile devices
Posted on 10-Jan-2004 16:32 | Tags Filed under: News



Futuremark Corporation announced the launch of its new Benchmark Development Program for Symbian based Smartphones. Key industry partners, including ATI, Imagination Technologies (PowerVR), Intel, Khronos Group, Neomagic, and NVIDIA, have joined Futuremark's Smartphone Benchmark Development Program.

"Increasingly, the application performance of a mobile phone is becoming an important criteria for consumers in the purchasing decision process," said Tero Sarkkinen, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Futuremark. "Power efficiency is a tightly coined factor, and it is important to measure how much power different phones consume when running today's and tomorrow's most demanding workloads. The early participation of important industry players will bring diversity to the program and is a validation of the work we have done so far," Sarkkinen continued.

Futuremark Corporation has completed the initial specification and has now started the implementation of the new mobile platform benchmark. It will measure the performance and power efficiency of Symbian based smartphones and will include OpenGL ES API 3D game scenes, image processing as well as native Symbian applications such as address book and calendar. Products based on Symbian OS include the BenQ P30, Motorola A920, Sendo X, Siemens SX-1, Fujitsu F2102V and F2051, Sony Ericsson P800 and P900, Nokia 9210 Communicators and 9290 Communicator as well as the Nokia 7650, 6600, 3650, 3600 and N-Gage.

The completed benchmark is scheduled for shipment during the second quarter of 2004. Smartphone Benchmark Development Program members have access to all development versions of the benchmark. Upon launch, the benchmark will become publicly available as binary executable.
