Basemark, the graphics software company based in Helsinki, Finland, has released a new benchmark test called “Basemark GPU” for both the PC and mobile devices. The new benchmark program is aimed solely at testing the graphics prowess of all graphics APIs, across both platforms.
According to sources, the new benchmark is designed to give testers the most amount of information of a system’s GPU. To that end, Basemark uses the Rocksolid Engine, which is capable of rendering triple-A grade graphical workloads for GPUs to run.
Basemark GPU is currently available for Windows, Linux, and the Android ecosystem. It is also designed to support the latest versions of both the OpenGL and Vulkan APIs. Basemark has said that it will be providing support for the DirectX 12 and Metal (for iOS) APIs. You can download Baseline GPU directly from the company’s main page.
