Nice evaluation tool for Android devices

The AnTuTu System Benchmark is an Android benchmarking tool that can run a full test of a mobile devices’ processor through a series of test for easy comparison. It can test for

  • Memory Performance
  • CPU Integer Performance
  • CPU Floating point Performance
  • 2D and 3D Graphics Performance
  • SD card reading/writing speed
  • Database I/O performance.

And when completed presents the results in a numeric list on the mobile device’s screen.

We ran the benchmark on some of the mobile devices we had and got the following results (we didn’t test for SD car or Database I/O performance.

Based in China AnTuTu was developed by Beijing Zhirui Technology Limited, the company trademarked the name in March 2011.


Quadrant is another mobile device CPU, I/O and 3D graphics benchmark. The Standard Edition requires an Internet connection to compute benchmark results and is supported by ads. The application does not work on devices with no GPU. And the new Nexus S, Google phone is not yet supported. We are investigating this test and will report on it in the next issue of MTTL.

Over clocking

A vibrant over clocking community is emerging within the mobile device industry. We think Nvidia can take credit for attracting this clan of users to the arena. Before Tegra and Android no one thought about the possibility. We can see it now—helium cooled Smartphone runs at 3 GHz and scores 5,000 in Rightware tests.
