Abstract:

Futuremark develops industry standard benchmarking software (such as 3DMark) that measures hardware performance of PCs, tablets, and smartphones. Running benchmarks during the product development process can highlight setup and stability problems. Comparing scores from similar systems can help you choose between upgrades and new components.

This talk will center on how Futuremark and the companies that are working in its programs are involved in benchmarking the new generation of processors. These range from GPUs to CPUs to APUs and power the latest electronic devices. Futuremark’s benchmarks are the most authoritative performance tests and are widely used by the world’s leading software publications and enthusiasts review sites when testing the latest devices.
