UL Procyon® benchmark suite
Industry-standard benchmarks for professional users
Introducing UL Procyon—benchmarks for professional users. Procyon is a new benchmark suite from UL that we’re creating specifically for professional users in industry, enterprise, government, retail and press. Each Procyon benchmark will provide a familiar, consistent experience by sharing a common design and feature set. Flexible licensing means you can pick and choose the individual benchmarks that best meet your needs.
With more tests coming soon, the UL Procyon benchmark suite will soon offer a range of benchmarks and performance tests for professional users. Each benchmark is designed for a specific use case and uses real applications where possible. We're working closely with our industry partners to ensure that every Procyon benchmark is accurate, relevant and impartial.
