Rightware has, today, launched their latest benchmark in the Android Store/Google Play. This new benchmark, Basemark GUI is a benchmark intended to offer a real graphical user interface (GUI) benchmark for application developers and consumers that want to measure how fast their device performs in GUIs. Basemark GUI Free, the free Android Market version of this application measures the 3D graphics render performance of a device's GPU, while focusing on vertex streaming and blending capabilities.
The benchmark itself provides two scores which are compiled from a series of different tests that are run at two different resolutions. One benchmark runs the tests at the native resolution of the device, regardless of the GPU's full potential. The second benchmark runs the tests at a 720P resolution in order to measure the raw performance of the GPU regardless of the resolution of the device. The first score is intended to give users their real world experience score on the device itself, while the second score is a metric of overall GPU performance in GUI scenarios.
