Here's a confession: we have a soft spot in our hearts for Futuremark. We used their benchmarking tools religiously to test out new products, and overall, it all works great. Rightware was recently spun off from Futuremark, and today they're launching a much-needed new benchmarking service for mobile and embedded device browsing performance. Ever wanted to compare browsing performance between the iPhone, Nexus One, Wii, iPad and/or PS3? Now you can.



The new tool is called BrowserMark, and it's available in two versions. The free version does enough for most consumers who are just curious, while the corporate version enables device manufacturers to evaluate and choose better performing browsers for their products. And if you want to try it out today, you can. Just head to the download link noted in the full press announcement below and run a few tests of your own. You may be surprised at what you find out.


Rightware Debuts BrowserMark

Consumers will benefit from new information revealing substantial
performance differences between different browsers


Espoo, Finland - April 14, 2010. Rightware extends its benchmarking software
coverage to mobile and embedded device web browsers by today's launch of
BrowserMarkT. Rightware offers two versions of the product. Consumers can
check which browser is the best for them with the free version of the
benchmark, whereas the corporate version enables device manufacturers to
evaluate and choose better performing browsers for their products.

Consumers, as well as independent media and analysts, can immediately run
the test and see which browser performs the best with various devices. In
its internal testing, Rightware has determined that substantial performance
differences exist between different browsers for one and same device.
Consumers are advised to consider switching to faster performing browsers as
they can gain significant power saving benefits and obtain a better usage
experience. Rightware's BrowserMarkT is an independent and trustworthy guide
for them in this task.

"Given the exponentially increasing usage of internet via cell phones and
other handheld devices, we knew that the world needed an objective
performance comparison tool" says Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Rightware. "With
BrowserMark, we're helping the industry develop better performing browsers
for their devices. Consumers reap the benefits in the form of more efficient
browsers that provide faster browsing experience."

Availability

BrowserMarkT is available immediately. To try the free version, simply visit
http://bit.ly/brmark with your device.

Companies interested in licensing the corporate version for advanced test
results, as well as private benchmark results database, are asked to send an
email to sales@rightware.com for detailed pricing and licensing information.

This is interesting, although I don't really have much need for knowing how fast any of my browsers go.

I did follow the links, and thanks to you guys. It finally lead me to a good benchmark tester :)

I always wondered what I should use to find out how the hardware is working.

It seems like most of these are set up for testing gaming PC's. I have an order in for an FP8700 that should be here around next week. I would like to test my current system and after, to see the performance and integration of the new card. I know 3D Max has a Hardware scoring system and right now I am at around a 3.2, which is fairly better that the minimum required.

Which leads me to this question. Through all your Hardware knowledge, what would you recommend for testing workstations?

I would like to know how much horsepower I gain with each upgrade:)

Intel Core i7-875K Quad
Asetek 510LC 120MM
