Enables independent performance testing and comparison of the latest Symbian smartphones
Espoo, Finland May 9, 2007 Futuremark Corporation, the industry leading provider of system performance analysis software and services for cell phones, handhelds and PCs today announced the general availability of SPMark for Symbian OS v9.
SPMark for Symbian OS v9 is the most comprehensive benchmark for modern smartphones. The product works on the latest Symbian OS devices, and enables users to professionally measure and compare performance across various smartphones and workloads. SPMark gives an easy-to-understand SPMark score for Symbian OS v9 smartphones which is fully comparable with scores obtained from other supported devices running the same software. The benchmark is immediately available in 2 different versions:
- Free end-user/consumer version that includes 3D gaming and theoretical tests for 3D performance evaluation
- Pro version that additionally includes system tests for Symbian applications (e.g. calendar and contacts database), customizable test runs and a battery test.
SPMark for Symbian OS v9 is a new product in the SPMark series of Symbian OS benchmarks. The first product, SPMark04, was released in 2004 and supports Symbian OS v6.x, v7.x and v8.x smartphones.
Both SPMark for Symbian OS v9 and SPMark04 contain the same system tests, making it easy to compare the two results.
