Augmented reality applications would be the mother of the benchmarks in mobile

Augmented reality applications would be the mother of the benchmarks in mobile

As in traditional computers, mobile phones are also important synthetic or tests, there is an interesting variety of applications that meet this work in mobile operating systems, as Vellamo or Quadrant, among several others.

However, according to Qualcomm, ARM chip company that designs, the best way to test the performance of a portable device is through applications, ie tools that capture and enrich the environment giving as much information to what we see in reality.

Reportedly, this would be the “mother of all tests”, as the set of elements on the computer that are required in this class of utilities includes almost everything you bring with you: CPU, GPU, DSP (co-processors) ISP (image processor), along with lots of such as accelerometer, barometer, gyroscope, microphone, camera and GPS.

So certainly in the future will be created for a specific application in mobile augmented reality as understood in order to test, to be a better indicator than synthetic benchmarks specific to the CPU or GPU performance.
