Intro and summary

GameBench is very different to other mobile benchmarks, because it is designed to measure the performance of mobile devices running real workloads. These workloads are simply apps — the very same apps and games that ordinary smartphone owners download and run every day.

ANDROID

 

84 percent of all mobile devices run Android. GameBench has already been used to profile 2500 apps running on over 1000 different Android devices. 

COVERAGE

 

Our app works on the 75 percent of Android devices that run Jelly Bean 4.1.2 or higher. Our iOS version is in development will be launched soon. 

ACCURACY

 

We provide 100% real-world data, with no reliance on synthetic workloads that are easily cheated. With GameBench, the app or game is the benchmark.
