Antutu V8 Open Beta Released: Supporting Vulkan
Today Antutu released AntutuBenchmark V8 open beta version, which has included a number of significant improvements andupgrades over the existing CPU test, GPU test, memory test and UX test. The newversion is now available for download on Google Play.
In Antutu V8, the proportion of memoryworkloads was increased, which will allow devices with bigger and fasterrunning memory and flash to deliver better performance in the new version.
Regarding 3D test, with the risingpopularity of Vulkan API, Antutu included two Vulkan scenes- “Coastline” and“Terracotta Warriors” which, though have high requirements for devices’ Androidsystem version and memory capacity as follows:
1. The device’s GPU should support Vulkan (OtherwiseCoastline and Terracotta will be skipped)
2. Requires Android 7.0 and above (OtherwiseCoastline and Terracotta will be skipped)
3. Running memory should be at least 6GB, oravailable running memory at least 2GB (Otherwise Terracotta will be skipped)
With regard to CPU test, we upgraded therelated algorithms to provide better support for Tri-Cluster CPU architecture.
In terms of UX test, the overall workloadwas increased. Meanwhile, screen refresh rate is included into the scope ofmeasurement. Test results will be better with high refresh rate mode enabled.
The above is the introduction of Antutu V8.For more features about the new version, please download the app from GooglePlay store and check it out by yourself. We welcome any feedback from allour Twitter and Facebook followers.
