Futuremark has introduced Miranda, this is world's first benchmark to measure the OpenGL ES 2.0 performance of 3D graphical display systems used in the automotive industry. The benchmark uses Kanzi, Futuremark's user interface engine for in-car applications.
“Automotive manufacturers and their suppliers recognize that rich, context sensitive, graphical displays offer many advantages over the analogue dials that have been used for the last 100 years,” said Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Futuremark. “Futuremark is providing the tools to design, measure and deliver this new technology within the fast paced timeframes required to meet the needs of today’s consumers.”
Mirada has been created in cooperation with the members of Futuremark’s Benchmark Development Program to provide the most realistic and reliable set of diagnostic tools available. Mirada benchmarks a car’s graphical display system by simulating the needs of tomorrow’s dashboard designs and the requirements of instrumentation, infotainment and navigation as well as many of the features found in smart devices today. In addition, Mirada includes several low level tests for measuring the performance of specific technical features.
The Mirada automotive display benchmark is built upon the latest OpenGL ES 2.0 version of Futuremark’s Kanzi™ user interface engine for automotive, mobile and embedded devices. Kanzi technology is already used by nearly every major semiconductor company in the form of Futuremark’s OpenGL® ES benchmarks which help tune the performance of new chips.
