Basemark® GUI Free offers a true graphical user interface benchmark for application developers and consumers who want to measure how fast their device’s hardware performs in the context of graphical user interfaces. Basemark® GUI Free measures the 3D graphics rendering performance of device’s graphics processing unit (GPU) focusing in Vertex Streaming and Blending capabilities.
Basemark® GUI Free offers versatile result generation in form of off-screen, vertex streaming, blending and overall score of tests. The off-screen score is generated from tests where data is rendered into 720p-sized ‘virtual screen’ in order to enable an objective comparison of devices with different screen resolutions. The vertex streaming test streams a large amount of vertices to the GPU and indicates how the device would perform in similar situation, for example, running a navigation software with 3D acceleration. The blending test measures the capability for rendering multiple transparent objects on top of each other.
Basemark® GUI Free is a portion of the full product, Basemark® GUI, which was developed in close cooperation with the world’s leading mobile phone manufacturers and semiconductor companies. Basemark® GUI has been licensed by major phone and tablet manufacturers as well as most prominent semiconductor companies and therefore can be considered an industry standard and well endorsed by the industry. After running the benchmark, consumers can easily check how the performance of their device compares to other devices with the integrated Power Board online service.
Basemark® GUI Free product and Power Board service are targeted only for consumer and independent media use, and any commercial use is strictly forbidden.
