To simulate real use, BXBench 2.0 transfers real website content and connects the web server to the test device via WLAN. Even better, to provide valuable design feedback while ensuring standardized testing, BXBench 2.0 allows the test engineer to modulate the bandwidth and latency of the local server to simulate a variety of wireless and Wi-Fi scenarios.
BXBench 2.0 measures the browsing performance within commercial stand-alone browsers, allowing users to compare browsing performance and battery life across different hardware platforms running a variety of browser implementations.
“Creating a benchmark for mobile platforms requires more than simply loading a series of web pages, as you must carefully control caching effects and perform tasks such as page scrolling to ensure 100% rendering,” said Markus Levy, EEMBC president. “Engineers will love that BxBench can serve as a valuable validation tool for their designs and consumers will appreciate BXBench because it encourages manufacturers to test their systems and deliver high-performance connected devices that give good results on common Web-browser tasks.”
