Benchmark Results With 3DMark for Android
Since we had a bunch of smart devices in our labs, we gave the new 3DMark for Android a run across our devices. The results were very, very surprising to say the least.
As you can see, Samsung's Galaxy Note II gets knocked onto the ground and kicked in the guts. I actually e-mailed Futuremark, asking if my Note II results were indeed correct for the Note II, to which I had the reply of "The differences between Android devices in the Android space can be quite large -one of the reasons that makes benchmarking in this area so interesting."
LG's Nexus 4 completely dominates 3DMark from our devices, but the Xperia Z is not far behind it. In the Ice Mark benchmarks, which are run at 720p, the Nexus 4 pulls ahead with a score of 11188, but the Xperia Z scores just 9063. The first Ice Storm Extreme benchmark, run at 1080p, sees the Nexus 4 score 6354 and the Xperia Z score 5960 - a much closer match.
The ASUS-made Nexus 7 gets trampled, and a very surprising result for me is the Note II with 2483 and 3361 for Ice Storm and Ice Storm Extreme, respectively. This is nearly a quarter of what the much cheaper Nexus 4 scores for Ice Storm Extreme, and close to just a third of what the Nexus 4 scores in Ice Storm. These results were striking to me, and something I think we're going to see more of if our quote from Futuremark is anything to go by. Exciting times for mobile benchmarking.
There's not much to say that I haven't said above, but I'm a big fan of Futuremark's 3DMark for Android for multiple reasons. Firstly, as the Mobile Devices Editor for TweakTown, it gives me yet another benchmarking app to show the differences between devices when I'm reviewing them - and a much better application than others, as it is across multiple operating systems.
Secondly, as a lover of mobile devices, having one of the biggest companies known for benchmarking release a mobile benchmark makes me a very happy enthusiast. Futuremark entering the mobile benchmarking scene with an app release of this caliber for their first app is nothing short of greatness.
The sharing aspects of 3DMark have been fixed for me, something I complained about in the desktop version - something I'm now happy with.
