Futuremark announces that it has started development of 3DMark for Android.
Aiming to bring the industry standard gaming performance benchmark to Android powered tablets in 2012, the 3DMark for Android (working title) will measure gaming performance using rendering, CPU, and physics tests. Results will be comparable with 3DMark for Windows 8.
More importantly, with Windows 8 making its way onto tablets, the potential benchmark comparisons between Android and Windows 8 tablets will provide consumers with a more detailed analysis of how tablets using different operating systems and hardware specifications match up against each other.
Futuremark added that 3DMark for Android will have an expected release date within 2012.
