+ - Futuremark's New 3DMark Introduces Cross-Platform Testing->

Submitted by
MojoKid writes "For 14 years, Futuremark's 3DMark benchmarks have served as a reliable point of comparison for PCs with a vast range of CPU and GPU configurations. Now, the company is branching out into cross platform testing. The new 3DMark (there's no year or modifier attached) is designed to allow for apples-to-apples comparisons across Android, iOS, Windows RT and Windows X86 devices. Only the PC version of the test is being made available today, but associated technical documentation tell how the cross-platform testing will be handled. Ice Storm is designed for tablets, ultra portables and entry level PCs. Cloud Gate is for notebooks and home PC with integrated graphics. Fire Strike is for gaming PC and high-end components, while Fire Strike Extreme is for multi-GPU systems."
