It's native I don't know how this app works, or how does Linpack work, but if they can be compared, and linpack bencmarks the dalvikVM with a similar algorythm, this application shows, that running everything in a virtual machine, is a very bad idea. It didn't solve any compatibility issue, or the manufacturers still do not update their phones. Our phones are getting more and more powerful, and we can use about 10% of the maximum performance. Use native C++, and forget dalvik. Application is stable, the test show constant results. Also a good feedback for overclock performance. Perhaps, it needs an 8 thread mode soon. The asus padfone 2 is here... Also, if there is a background activity, it stops benchmarking. (like receiving a call, sms, skype PM)
Simple, Consistent and Applicable Unlike with Linpak, the results do not wildly vary between separate runs. The MFlops result are also directly related to your CPU speed (with half CPU frequency, my score was close to half as well) so you can easily tell if that particular subsystem has improved.
Consistent results, convenient to use. The app delivers consistent results and doesn't seem to be terribly affected by kernel revisions or optimizations. The app works hard to do that, too - it keeps the screen awake so you don't have to constantly give input to keep it running at full. Very useful metric to compare various tablets and phones.
Nice work! Perfect for device/rom comparisons. I'll use it to update my results about snapdragon 400 behavior (previously done with an old outdated app)
2.2 Gflops on 2 cores, it's like CRAY-2
Finally, a good FLOP benchmark I am so excited for this app as it is an accurate test of the FLOP performance of a CPU unlike Linpack for Android that is so often used. It is simple and consistent, and provides great insight into the performance of your device. I am looking forward to a renderscript test! ;)
