Acer, Intel, Qualcomm and SingTel-Optus join up


Futuremark has just announced that its own Benchmark Development Program, the initiative behind the upcoming 3DMark benchmark for Android-based devices, has just been joined by some big players including Intel, Acer, Qualcomm and SingTel-Optus.

Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark CEO noted that they are quite excited to see an expansion of cooperation with such big names in order to develop 3DMark for Android and make sure that it lives up to industry standard seen with 3DMark and PCMark on the PC side.

In case you missed, the upcoming 3DMark for Android will measure gaming performance using graphics rendering, CPU and physics test with real-time graphics that will OpenGL ES2.0 to the limit. The results of the 3DMark for Android will be comparable to results from the upcoming new 3DMark for Windows.

Acer, Intel, Qualcomm and SingTel-Optus will join the rest of the members that already include some big names like AMD, Nvidia, Samsung, Imagination Technologies and Microsoft.

Both the 3DMark for Android and the 3DMark for Windows are scheduled for later this year and by the looks of things it will have a great support from some major players in the industry.
