A new open source benchmark aims to give engineers and end users a way to measure the performance of Android-based systems.  The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) released its AndEBench metric as an app on Google Play and the Amazon Appstore for Android.
AndEBench scores integer performance of a basket of tasks both on the native Android environment and on its Dalvik Java virtual machine. The jobs include a mix of state machine routines, cyclic redundancy checks and matrix multiply operations, but no floating point tasks.


The benchmark can be set to test a system with a single or a multiple core processor. The app provides binary code for testing ARM, MIPS or Intel Atom x86 cores.


   The AndEBench™ benchmark provides a standardized, industry-accepted method of evaluating Android platform performance

  • Targets smartphones, portable gaming devices, set-top boxes, or anywhere Android is employed.
  • Compatible with development platforms and finished commercial devices
  • Free download in the Android market and at the Amazon Appstore for Android
  • Easy to run – just the push of a button


  General Features

  • Initial focus on CPU and Dalvik interpreter performance
  • Internal algorithms concentrate on integer operations
  • Compares the difference between native and Java performance
  • Implements flexible multicore performance analysis
  • Results displayed in ‘Iterations per second’
  • Detailed log file for comprehensive engineering analysis
