WP Bench: Arrive vs Focus vs Quantum [Video]

WP Bench is a nifty free app that hit the Marketplace this weekend. It's what it sounds like, a full featured Benchmarking suite used to gauge your device's GPU, CPU, battery, display, etc. All in all, solid stuff. Couple of niggles though: you can't save results, you lose them if the screen turns off and no database to compare to other devices. But hey, for v1.0 and free, it's a great start.

  • CPU singlethreaded performance
  • CPU multithreaded performance
  • Memory read/write speed
  • Storage read/write speed
  • GPU performance
  • Display color reproduction
  • Battery life tester

We decided, for laughs, to throw it on the LG Quantum, Samsung Focus and HTC Arrive to see what we got. (hint: results were similar) You can see the results above and watch the short video after the jump to see what the app has in store. Overall, we like it. You can grab it here in the Marketplace.

WP Bench: Arrive vs Focus vs Quantum [Video]


I did an informal benchmark comparing an app I'm writing to one that has been around on iOS for a couple years (and that was recently updated). My WP7 app returns the same result set in half the time of the comparable app running on iOS 4.3 on an iPhone 4 and 1/4 the time of a 2nd gen iPod Touch. The iOS app author has written several books in iPhone and Mac programming so would presumably be making the most of that dev environment.

Here are the results for my HTC HD7 (o2, 16GB)CPU sequential and paralleltime: 21326 mssequential: 10868 msparallel: 10458 msDATA memory and storage 0.8 MBtime: 16695 msmemory: 13.07 MB/sstorage: 3.27MB/sGPU acceleration / fillrate683 frames, avg: 22 FPS

Wow the Data test took a very long time on my HD2. But anyways here are my results:CPU sequential and paralleltime: 21276 mssequential: 10833 msparallel: 10443 msDATA memory and storage 0.8 MBtime: 1021603 ms WTF?memory: 13.07 MB/s storage: 0.04MB/s WTF?GPU acceleration / fillrate684 frames, avg: 22 FPS I'm using a SanDisk 8gb Class 4 card :/

Im gonna go with something is wrong with your SD card. Ive got a focus and i got...CPU sequential and paralleltime: 21421 mssequential: 10895 msparallel: 10526 msDATA memory and storage 0.8 MBtime: 15202 msmemory: 13.07 MB/sstorage: 3.56 MB/sGPU acceleration / fillrate682 frames, avg: 22 FPS And thats with a 16 gig sandisk micrsd in it.

Here are the results for my Samsung Focus w/NoDo (AT&T, Kingston Class 4 32GB)CPU sequential and paralleltime: 21344 mssequential: 10873 msparallel: 10471 msDATA memory and storage 0.8 MBtime: 15725 msmemory: 13.07 MB/sstorage: 3.56MB/sGPU acceleration / fillrate681 frames, avg: 22 FPS
