Basemark has released its new Basemark GPU benchmark for Windows, Linux and Android, allowing PC users to compare their PC performance with other hardware using the Vulkan, OpenGL and OpenGL ES APIs.
At a later date, this new benchmarking utility will be updated to support other APIs such as DirectX 12 and Metal, although for now, the benchmark is to support the latest hardware outside the Apple ecosystem.
The reference index will be available as both a free and a premium application, allowing users to run identical workloads on a variety of systems to compare the performance of their graphics. Basemark says the software was developed in cooperation with Imagination Technologies, Nvidia, Qualcomm and Renesas, with no mention of AMD or Radeon in the company’s official press release.
Basemark GPU is now available from Google Play Store or as a direct download for Windows, Linux and Android, with a version of Windows around 2.9GB. The benchmark has a high-quality 4K mode and a medium quality 1080p mode that is intended for desktop and mobile systems respectively.
