Thanks to the collaboration, TUV Rheinland will secure an excellent service for product performance and evaluation at all stages of development, even at a component level like chipsets, GPUs or CPUs - right up to the final product. Basemark's suite of benchmarks like Basemark X, Basemark ES and Basemark OS allows TUV Rheinland to fine tune the devices speed, stability and overall performance.

Tero Sarkkinen, founder and CEO of Basemark explains: "We are thoroughly excited about this partnership, because it opens a whole new category of product-quality testing. Consumers, corporations, and government purchasers can now also choose products based on how fast a device performs various tasks. We firmly believe that our partnership results in better customer satisfaction. However, this is just the beginning of what we can do together with TÜV Rheinland, and I look forward to building a wide-ranging partnership that results in a wealth of new services for our combined roster of customers".
