Futuremark Corporation, the leading provider of performance analysis software and services, today launched a consumer version of its SPMark(TM)04 Smart Phone benchmark. SPMark(TM)04 has become the industry’s most widely used testing tool for Symbian-based smart phones and is rapidly becoming the de-facto performance measurement standard for mobile platforms. SPMark(TM)04 consumer version measures the performance of Series 60 and UIQ based smartphones and includes visually stunning 3D game play tests using the OpenGL ES graphics API. For handsets without hardware OpenGL ES implementation, the benchmark includes Hybrid Graphics’ OpenGL ES API Implementation.

Futuremark Corporation, the leading provider of performance analysis software
and services, today launched a consumer version of its SPMark(TM)04 Smart Phone
benchmark. SPMark(TM)04 has become the industry’s most widely used testing tool
for Symbian-based smart phones and is rapidly becoming the de-facto performance
measurement standard for mobile platforms.

SPMark(TM)04 provides a comprehensive application for measuring and comparing
the performance of mobile devices. Its benefit to the industry is to allow
consumers, media, retailers, and operators to objectively compare different
handsets. Handset manufacturers use SPMark(TM)04 to reliably evaluate and
compare various semiconductor implementations.

"The consumer version of SPMark(TM)04 provides owners of compatible handsets
with previously unavailable information, including detailed performance and
comparison data. Now anyone can see exactly how their own phone performs and
compares to new models reviewed in the independent media", said Tero Sarkkinen,
Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Futuremark.

The benchmark has been developed in collaboration with key industry partners,
including ATI, Bitboys, Imagination Technologies (PowerVR), Intel, Khronos
Group, Neomagic, and NVIDIA under Futuremark’s Benchmark Development Program for
Smartphones.

SPMark(TM)04 consumer version measures the performance of Series 60 and UIQ
based smartphones and includes visually stunning 3D game play tests using the
OpenGL ES graphics API. For handsets without hardware OpenGL ES implementation,
the benchmark includes Hybrid Graphics’ OpenGL ES API Implementation.

Key Features of SPMark(TM)04 consumer version:

Free download;
Supports handsets with Symbian 6 and 7 operating systems and Series60 or UIQ
