Benchmark Filesystem Improvements with RealBench
Are you someone who likes to get some quality benchmark statistics out of your Android device? XDA forum member RyanZA definitely is and the dev got sick of using Quadrant, so he decided to write his own application – RealBench!
Currently, RealBench provides one benchmark (more coming soon), that heavily stresses the filesystem for both reading and writing, as well has heavily stressing ram and the garbage collector. The benchmark is designed to do as poorly as possible with the Samsung Galaxy S’s stock problems. RealBench lists the current FPS at the top of the screen while it’s running.
The dev is requesting that members test RealBench out on other Android devices such as the Google Nexus One and to please report back.
To download the app and help with feedback, check out the application thread.
