3DMarkMobile06 will help speed the development of fast, and powerful OpenGL ES accelerated mobile devices

3DMarkMobile06 is the first benchmark designed specifically to benchmark next generation OpenGL ES 1.0 and OpenGL ES 1.1 hardware accelerated mobile handsets and is developed in cooperation with Khronos members; including ARM, ATI, Bitboys, DMP, Falanx, Imagination Technologies, Intel, NVIDIA and Symbian. The benchmark delivers a variety of performance tests that measure mobile 3D hardware using OpenGL ES and will assist the industry to deliver 3D-enabled handhelds that are fast, powerful, and efficient. An end-user friendly of 3DMarkMobile06 is expected to be launched later next year to enable consumers to conduct their own benchmarking of handsets with hardware accelerated 3D graphics.
