Testing OUYA with 3DMark
Shortly after Futuremark released 3DMark on the Google Play store a couple of weeks ago, they were contacted by James Coote
(@JamesACoote), developer of upcoming OUYA game Executive Star:
OUYA is console based on components for mobile devices, quite attractivly priced at $99. James was keen to try 3DMark on his OUYA dev kit, they were happy to help, and now we have his results. Here’s a video of James running 3DMark on his OUYA.
And here are the OUYA’s results in detail:
The OUYA is currently ranked #73 among Android devices for 3DMark Ice Storm, new benchmark designed specifically for testing the performance of mobile hardware. Ice Storm is an OpenGL ES 2.0 benchmark that uses a fixed off-screen rendering resolution of 720p before scaling the output to fit the native display resolution of the device. Ice Storm includes two graphics tests designed to stress the GPU performance of the device and a physics test to stress its CPU performance.

As OUYA can’t install 3DMark from Google Play you will need the standalone installer if you have access to this console. OUYA offers every game free to try, and if you like it you can download your game directly. As you can see from pictures, every console will be accompanied with thoughtfully crafted controller, enhancing every game thanks to its precise, responsive feedback, a touchpad for new dimensions of gameplay and 15 buttons to mash as you please. But OUYA with its 1080p resolution isn’t just for gaming. OUYA brings all your favorite apps to the big screen, streaming shows, movies, and music directly into the living room. They already partnered with Twitch.tv, Crunchyroll, iheartradio, TuneIn, XBMC, Plex and Flixster and are adding more to the list. OUYA is outfitted with NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via USB).
