iOS / iPhone and Android benchmark charts
We have now released PerformanceTest mobile for both the iPhone and Android. Like the full Windows release you can benchmark your CPU, video, memory and disk.
All the details & the downloads for the benchmark apps are on this page.
We have also be compiling results into charts on 2 different sites,
Performance benchmarks chart for Android devices can be found here,
Performance benchmarks chart for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod) can be found here,

Very nice. Will it at all be possible to use this to compare iphones to PC hardware?
Also, will it support tablets? and which ones?
Any tablet running Windows (x86), iOS, or Android should be OK.
You can somewhat compare the numbers for the individual tests with a PC, but it isn't always a fair comparison. For example on Android, all the code is written in Java, which tends to be slower than the C++ and assembler code used in Windows. There are also compiler differences and some differences in the actual tests. For example on Windows we have access to much more RAM than on iOS and Android. There are also SIMD instructions on the Intel CPUs that aren't available on iOS and Android. There is also normally a CD/DVD drive in Windows PC's.
Android & PC comparisons
This seems strange to me. The best Android Passmark ratings are around 2300, which is on par with a Core i5 at 2.4 GHz. That seems unbelievably fast for the Android. Is that right? Am I missing something, other than the caveats above (Android code in Java, etc).
The overall tests results are a scaled weighted average. Which uses different weightings between Windows and iOS and Android as the tests are different.
We are trying to keep it the same between iOS and Android.
What you can compare is the individual tests. For example Integer maths, which is measured in millions of operations per second (MOps).
So for example,
The new Asus Transformer Prime TF201 running Android with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-core CPU gets around 160 MOps for Integer maths.
A dual core AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5400+ also gets around 160MOps. This was a CPU from 2006.
But you also need to look at more than just the Integer maths score as different CPUs will be strong in different areas.
It's almost like you're trying to say
the subtleties matter. Bah!
Seriously though, thanks for a great set of tools & reports.
Is there enyway to get the file around google play
i cant download it i have desire with andriod miui 2.3 and i get this message.
This app is incompatible with your 3 HTC HTC Desire.
We have not put any phone on the block list, but it seems some users are having trouble downloading from Google Play.
An alternative to Google Play is to download it from Amazon AppStore.
i cant get it from amazon.com its US citicens only

We contacted Google Play support to see why our App may be blocked for some devices.
None of the manifest settings should exclude any particular device. The app does require that the device should be running Android 1.6 and above, which shouldn't be a problem for a most devices as 99% of users are at least running 2.1 (as reported via Android website.)
Will update once we get more information.
