GLBench is one of the best tools to see the performance of your mobiles Graphics Processing Power
GLBench 2.5 fixes a smattering of issues that was present in earlier versions, mostly by moving to a tougher to compute version of Egypt
AnAndtech have conducted a lot of tests using the new GLBench 2.5. While the animation is pretty much the same, the overall scene in Egypt (now called Egypt HD) has been vastly increased in complexity, especially the geometry, texture resolution has been raised and that combined with more reflections and water shaders puts a lot more strain on the tested device. The resolution has been beefed up too – from 720p to 1080p.
The GLBench 2.5 is available on Google’s P;lay store, but at the time of writing the same cannot be said for Apple’s devices, and isn’t available for the public as yet. Still, AnandTech managed to get their hands on the software and their tests cover a large cross section of the currently popular devices, so if you are thinking of buying a new tablet or smartphone with the thoughts of gaming, it could well be worth your time spending a few moments reading over the article.
The Ipad A5X did well (as you’d expect) doing extremely well in the various Trangle tests, with it and the Ipad 2 being superior in this test than the Google Nexus 7.
