FutureMark developing Vector Graphics Benchmark

Posted on Wednesday, Feb 15 2006 @ 16:33 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Futuremark announced they have established an open development program to define and create VGMark07, the OpenVG Benchmark. This new benchmark will provide handheld industry companies developing OpenVG API enabled hardware with objective and accurate cross platform comparisons of OpenVG performance.

With over eight years experience invested in 2D, 3D and system benchmarking applications, Futuremark is designing VGMark07 as a complete benchmark suite. To reliably gauge the performance of handheld devices running applications that utilize OpenVG API, workloads will be based on popular consumer applications that place a high demand on system performance. The full suite of tests is subject to change, pending industry and partner feedback during the development process, but will replicate OpenVG API dependant tasks such as user interface, text rendering, vector animation and mapping/navigation.

The methodology behind VGMark07 reflects Futuremark's practice of building benchmark workloads based on real world applications to produce credible and relevant performance measurements. VGMark07 will allow handheld device manufacturers to select IP based on actual performance comparisons rather than relying on unproven claims or theoretical specifications.
