3DMark Android gets new “Unlimited” benchmark test

 3DMark added a new test to for making chip-to-chip comparisons across mobile devices and operating systems. 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited provides an accurate way to measure component performance without vertical sync, display resolution scaling and other operating system factors affecting the result. In Unlimited mode the rendering engine uses a fixed time step between frames and renders exactly the same frames in every run on every device. The frames are rendered in 720p resolution “offscreen” while the display is updated with small frame thumbnails every 100 frames to show progress. Ice Storm Unlimited can be added to 3DMark for Android by updating to version 1.1.0-1179 from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.futuremark.dmandroid.application How to choose the right benchmark for your device Forced vertical sync on Android devices limits apps to displaying a maximum of 60 frames per second. Your score will be shown as “Maxed out” if your device hits the vertical sync limit during a test. This indicates that the test is too lightweight for your device. 3DMark will recommend the best test for your device to avoid vertical sync limits. Use 3DMark Ice Storm to make device-to-device comparisons of mainstream smartphones and tablets. Ice Storm includes two Graphics tests designed to stress the graphical (GPU) performance of your device and a Physics test to stress its processing (CPU) performance. Devices that are too fast f...

Kingston Technology to Demo ECC SO-DIMMs for an Avoton C2000 Microserver and Working DDR4 Memory at IDF 2013

Kingston will be showcasing their demos at booth 154 in the Memory Community Fountain Valley, CA – September 9, 2013 – Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced they will be showcasing working DDR4 memory, XMP certified HyperX memory on a new Ivybridge-E based desktop, 2133 MHz SO-DIMMs for a Haswell based notebook and ECC memory in an Avoton based microserver at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) 2013. IDF will be held at the Moscone center in San Francisco, California on September 10th – 12th . During IDF 2013 Kingston will be showcasing four demo systems.

The Kingston HyperX demo will be showcasing the latest HyperX memory that has been validated through Intel’s XMP certification process. The demos will be shown using an X79 motherboard and one of Intel’s newest Ivybridge E processors. Our 2133 MHz SO-DIMM memory demo will be shown working on a Haswell based notebook. The Microserver demo will be demonstrating 1600 MHz 1.35V low voltage ECC SODIMM memory on an Intel Atom C2000-series “Avoton” microserver. Kingston’s ECC SODIMM memory has been validated on the Intel “Edisonville” microserver system, and is posted on Intel’s website. Intel’s Avoton System on a Chip (SoCs) is a more powerful chip for use in the microserver market. This c...
