Futuremark launches Mirada, worlds first benchmark for in-car graphical displays
Automotive industry to benefit from impartial performance measurement of advanced dashboard displays using 3D graphics
HELSINKI, FINLAND - JANUARY 20, 2009 - Futuremark today launched Mirada, a new benchmark to measure the performance of 3D graphical display systems used in the automotive industry. With Mirada, car manufacturers, tier-1 suppliers, application developers and integrated chip companies have a common standard for impartial performance measurement and comparison of different OpenGL ES 2.0 solutions using realistic automotive scenarios and workloads.
Automotive manufacturers and their suppliers recognize that rich, context sensitive, graphical displays offer many advantages over the analogue dials that have been used for the last 100 years, said Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Futuremark. Futuremark is providing the tools to design, measure and deliver this new technology within the fast paced timeframes required to meet the needs of todays consumers.
Mirada has been created in cooperation with the members of Futuremarks Benchmark Development Program to provide the most realistic and reliable set of diagnostic tools available. Mirada benchmarks a cars graphical display system by simulating the needs of tomorrows dashboard designs and the requirements of instrumentation, infotainment and navigation as well as many of the features found in smart devices today. In addition, Mirada includes several low level tests for measuring the performance of specific technical features.
The Mirada automotive display benchmark is built upon the latest OpenGL ES 2.0 version of Futuremarks Kanzi user interface engine for automotive, mobile and embedded devices. Kanzi technology is already used by nearly every major semiconductor company in the form of Futuremarks OpenGL® ES benchmarks which help tune the performance of new chips.
The Mirada Automotive Display Benchmark is now available in binary form for porting and source code can be licensed directly from Futuremark.###
