Basemark X

Cross-Platform Benchmarking Tool

Cross-platform benchmarking tool for mobile devices

Basemark X is the world’s most popular benchmarking tool for evaluation and cross-platform comparison of gaming and graphics performance between Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8 smartphone and tablets.

Basemark X is the only vendor-independent benchmark that utilizes the real-world game engine Unity which is very popular among game developers. This means that it scores correlate exceptionally well with real-life gaming performance.

Important notice!:

Basemark X is a discontinued product and we do not develop it any further. We do offer customer support for the product but there will be no updates for now.
There are also some problems with latest iOS devices is because of comparability issues with older versions of Unity Engine and Apple policies.

Apple is not offering support for 32bit Apps anymore so Basemark X is removed from the iStore.

The benchmark comes with an integrated online results comparison service, dubbed Power Board, which already has a whole database of detailed performance data for over 1,000 devices. Power Board shows a user’s actual performance as compared to other devices "
