Toronto, ON (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
Primate Labs Inc., developer of the popular cross-platform Geekbench benchmark, is excited to announce Geekbench 2 for BlackBerry, available immediately from BlackBerry World.
"What's great about Geekbench 2 for BlackBerry is that it runs the same benchmark as Geekbench 2 for iOS and for Android," says John Poole, President of Primate Labs Inc. "This means users can compare the performance of their BlackBerry handset against the performance of Android and iOS devices."
Using a variety of benchmarks designed to simulate real-world scenarios, Geekbench 2 for BlackBerry measures both processor and memory performance. After running the benchmarks, Geekbench 2 displays an overall score for the device, and individual scores for each benchmark. The overall score allows users to quickly compare different devices, while the individual scores allow users to discover the strengths and weaknesses of different devices.
Geekbench 2 for BlackBerry is also multi-core aware, enabling users to discover the full potential of the dual-core processors found in the latest BlackBerry handsets.
Geekbench 2 for BlackBerry features a easy-to-use interface. With no benchmark options or settings to worry about, Geekbench takes the guesswork out of running benchmarks and helps improve the repeatability and reliability of benchmark results.
Like Geekbench 2 on other platforms, Geekbench 2 for BlackBerry can upload results to the Geekbench Browser. The Geekbench Browser allows users to easily upload, manage, and share their BlackBerry benchmark results. Users can also compare their results with other users' results; with over 1.6 million Geekbench results, the Geekbench Browser provides a rich and varied database for comparisons.
Geekbench 2 for BlackBerry is available today from BlackBerry World at http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/22969878/ for $0.99.
Geekbench 2 for BlackBerry requires a BlackBerry device running BlackBerry 10 or later.
