AndEBench™-Pro Provides Unbiased Measurement of Android-Based Devices
AndEBench-Pro focuses on the key metrics that reflect the subsystems and usage models of applications running on Android devices. Hardware tests in the benchmark thoroughly exercise the CPU, GPU, memory, and storage subsystems using carefully designed, tough-to-fool algorithms. The Platform test includes common tasks such as GUI rendering, XML parsing, image manipulation, data compression, and cryptography, all combined into real-world scenarios.

“After more than 18 months of debating, defining, and developing, we are proud to deliver to the industry and the Android community this comprehensive and invaluable benchmark,” said
“Unfortunately, Android benchmarks in the market have been developed by entities that might be naÏve about how to develop a structurally sound benchmark, and furthermore their motivation is unclear,” said
In early 2012, EEMBC released its first-generation Android benchmark, called AndEBench. This pioneering benchmark provided a useful and transparent way to measure basic CPU performance. With this more sophisticated launch, AndEBench scores are not comparable to those generated by AndEBench-Pro. Still, EEMBC encourages the continued use of AndEBench, and highlights for its communities the availability of user-submitted scores representing more than 1,000 devices.
With support for both English and Chinese languages, the invaluable AndEBench-Pro can be downloaded for free from Google Play™ and the Amazon™ Appstore for Android. Professional device reviewers should contact EEMBC directly to obtain their specific version of AndEBench-Pro that will enable them to change benchmarking parameters and gain undisclosed scoring information to aid in their device analysis. In addition, EEMBC encourages all vendors and manufacturers to join the consortium’s working group to contribute to the definition and development of our next generation AndEBench.
