In what looks like a surprisingly low-key release, Kishonti Ltd. has brought its very poplar and latest GFXBench 3.0 benchmarking app to Windows Phone. The app offers high-level DirectX 11 tests. Its arrival was long due for Windows Phone and it had been available for Android and iOS platforms since early 2014.
Anyways, as they say it is better late than never, so you can install the app now and use to benchmark your devices. Still the app doesn’t support two high-level “Manhattan tests” on Windows Phone, it seems.
I put the app to test on my Lumia 1020 and the app performs just fine. It has tabbed UI and offers ability to selects tests or go ahead with all of them. It also neatly displays your device details and if you wish, you can compare your devices results to other devices for all the test you may have performed on your device.
You can register or login, if you already have an account. Though, registration sometimes doesn’t work smoothly and needs a fix.
