Tero Sarkkinen, the founder and CEO of Basemark told TweakTown "immensely excited about this new chapter in my life and in the growth opportunities now available for Basemark as a separate entity". Sarkkinen added that he could see that Rightware would continue to expand, but he wanted to do something new and saw the potential to grow the benchmarking software with its own, separate focus. The new vision of Basemark is to "become the world's largest testing house focused on gaming and graphics technologies".

 

Basemark has some serious partners that help out in the benchmarking process, including AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, Marvell, Microsoft, Qualcomm and Samsung. Their benchmark portfolio "is the largest in the world" which spans across Android, iOS and Windows Phone, as well as OpenGL ES, OpenCL and even in-browser benchmarking.
