Quadrant Benchmark Updated to v2.0 with ICS Support

Typically, performance benchmarks are used as bragging rights by Androidians all around the world on the internet. While there are several different benchmark applications available on the Android Market for free, Quadrant Standard has been one of the more popular ones over the years and has been updated to version 2.0 today. Quadrant had been lacking support for Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, as well as support for multi-core processors. Those are both resolved, let the overclocking begin!

Available today with a bit of a new GUI, v2.0 looks just a hair different.

There is a quadrant score from my Epic 4G Touch aka Samsung Galaxy SII from Sprint. It’s amazing how much slower TouchWiz is, compared to an AOSP scenario with CyanogenMod. I would see a score over 5000 in CM7.

What’s in this version:

  1. 2.0 changes:
  2. Support for multicore CPUs and ICS
  3. GUI improvements
  4. Polish translation
  5. Fixed slow framerate on PowerVR SGX 540
  6. Due to changes implemented to support new devices this version of Quadrant reports scores different from 1.x releases. The result browser will be restored in the next update, when new benchmark results are available.

Also, we would love if you would send us comments about your device and what it scores.
