Aurora Softworks have this week rolled out a new update to their Quadran Standard Edition benchmarking application for Android devices taking the software to version 2.0. Bringing with it support for Google new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) and multi-core processors.
The Quadrant 2.0 software is a CPU, I/O and 3D graphics benchmark system that allows you to compare the speeds and performance of Android devices. The Standard Edition requires an Internet connection to compute benchmark results and require a device with a GPU to function.
With the launch of Quadrant 2.0 you will need to note that its results aren’t directly comparable against those produced by earlier versions. Aurora explains that scores are tallied differently from their 1.x version of the application. Because of this, some may seem results that don’t make any sense at all. Aurora say they will soon be updating their results browser to reflect the new scoring system, so just be patient.Filed Under: Android News, Geeky Stuff, Mobile Phone News
