3DMark for Android Updated

Published by Travis G

3DMark benchmarking is key to everyone’s performance these days and the latest update for Android modifies the Vulkan version of the Sling Shot Extreme test to enable a fairer comparison with scores from the OpenGL ES 3.1 version. Vulkan scores will improve on many devices.

Vulkan scores from this version (Sling Shot Extreme – Vulkan v3.0) should not be compared with scores from older versions. Vulkan scores from previous versions should no longer be used to compare devices. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you.

With this update we will begin rebuilding our Best Smartphone and Best Tablet lists with Vulkan benchmark results from the new version of the app. Naturally, this will take some time. Meanwhile, Android devices with Vulkan scores from earlier versions will no longer be shown.

This update also fixes an unrelated issue that could cause the API Overhead feature test to fail on newer devices.
