    Futuremark rolled out a major update to its 3DMark (2013) graphics benchmark suite. Version 1.2.250 introduces "Ice Storm Unlimited" to the Windows version, letting you test Ice Storm at its maximum setting, and compare scores with iOS and Android devices. The suite also overhauled its hardware detection, and uses a detection engine developed by TechPowerUp. Hardware monitoring graphs will show clock speeds and temperatures of GPUs and CPUs again.

    TPU detection software (claps)
    If only the rest of the suite was as good.

    You can't really compare your hardware to others (at least as far as I can tell).
    When you try it shows the default score for your device rather than your result.
    On the N5 the stock result was 2k low. I am running ART and 4.42 but I got an ever so slightly higher result on stock and dalvik so... Not sure how they are getting those poor numbers.

    So if I want compare my iPhone 5S performance with my laptop, do I need to run on PC "Ice Storm Unlimited" test? And what about the iphone 3DMark? There I also need to select Ice Storm Unlimited?

    Sounds like the windows 7 repair install I did once...

    Thanks for the headsup, noted.

    Unfortunately Futuremark testing software has become too inconsistent IME to be of any real value regarding true system performance.
