Historically speaking, we typically see impressive performance gains each time Apple releases a new custom processor for its mobile products. Certainly that was true of the A7 System-on-Chip (SoC), the world's first 64-bit smartphone processor offering desktop-class performance. In our evaluation of the iPhone 5s, the A7 chip dominated our benchmark runs and consistently outperformed previous generation iPhone models, sometimes by an obscene margin. So, can we expect the same kind of performance bump from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, both of which sport a custom A8 SoC? Maybe not. Rightware... Read more...
We’ve already discussed the impending HTC M8 (One), or One M8, or whatever the final official name will be, but Rightware has shared the new handset’s benchmark results from its Basemark and BrowserMark tests. The HTC One M8 beat out the Nokia Lumia 1520 to take the top spot in gaming performance, topping the field in the Basemark OS II and Basemark X tests, making it also the top phone overall according to Rightware. The HTC One M8 wasn’t quite as hot in the BrowserMark web browsing test (finishing 7th), nor the Basemark GUI test. Still, the quad-core Snapdragon 801 (2.3GHz)... Read more...
We’re already hungry for more information about the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is presumably going to be dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S5, and Rightware has offered up a benchmark result that could be from the new phone. The handset that posted the score is listed as the Samsung SM-G900F, which Rightware says could be the Galaxy S5. The device scored a 3303.88 in BrowserMark, good for third place out of all handsets tested. The device is running a slightly older browser, Chrome 28, and Rightware noted that if it had the up-to-date Chrome 31, it may have leapfrogged the second-place... Read more...
Rumors around the what and when of Google’s upcoming Nexus 5 smartphone have been plentiful, and ahead of the supposed release date on Halloween, a benchmark score for the handset has slipped out from Rightware, and it’s downright impressive. According to Rightware’s Power Board, the Nexus 5 delivered the second-highest Benchmark X gaming score among smartphones, behind only the iPhone 5S, making it the most powerful Android-based handset in the land. The LG-made phone shares a GPU (the Adreno 330) with the third-place Sharp Aquos SHL23 but bested the latter handset with a score... Read more...
Although we prefer to wait until we have a chance to run our own benchmark tests before determining the performance capabilities of any hardware for certain, new scores on Rightware's Power Board page indicate that Google’s impending Moto X smartphone can hang with the best of them. Rightware believes that the “Motorola XT1058” and “Motorola XT1080”, which both have Adreno 320 graphics and scored 8.11 and 8.00 respectively in its Basemark X gaming test, are Moto X models. Source: Rightware What’s more, those two scores put the XT1058 in third place for the best... Read more...
There has been wide speculation that Google and ASUS have teamed up on a Kindle Fire-killing tablet that would offer potentially more features and functionality than the Fire yet match its price point. More details have emerged about the alleged tablet, and they certainly indicate that it’s a real thing. Rightware makes benchmarking software for mobile devices, and a result for “Google Asus Nexus 7” turned up in the company’s benchmark database. Apparently, someone with a prototype device is testing it, and for the record, the device hit an average score of 18 in the Basemark... Read more...
We love benchmarks here at HH, so it’s always good news when another one comes down the pike. Today, Rightware released Basemark CL, an OpenCL benchmark aimed at desktop machines, with an embedded profile version in the offing. With Basemark CL, Rightware is attempting to deliver a benchmark that puts realistic stress on OpenCL implementations with image manipulations tests and physics tests. The software can run single or multiple tests and checks the bandwidth limitations between the CPU and GPU and also checks the extra computing power OpenCL affords a system. Rightware is positioning... Read more...
