WP Bench: Arrive vs Focus vs Quantum [Video]

WP Bench is a nifty free app that hit the Marketplace this weekend. It's what it sounds like, a full featured Benchmarking suite used to gauge your device's GPU, CPU, battery, display, etc. All in all, solid stuff. Couple of niggles though: you can't save results, you lose them if the screen turns off and no database to compare to other devices. But hey, for v1.0 and free, it's a great start.

  • CPU singlethreaded performance
  • CPU multithreaded performance
  • Memory read/write speed
  • Storage read/write speed
  • GPU performance
  • Display color reproduction
  • Battery life tester

We decided, for laughs, to throw it on the LG Quantum, Samsung Focus and HTC Arrive to see what we got. (hint: results were similar) You can see the results above and watch the short video after the jump to see what the app has in store. Overall, we like it. You can grab it here in the Marketplace.

It would be nice to have a version for iOS devices too.

I did an informal benchmark comparing an app I'm writing to one that has been around on iOS for a couple years (and that was recently updated). My WP7 app returns the same result set in half the time of the comparable app running on iOS 4.3 on an iPhone 4 and 1/4 the time of a 2nd gen iPod Touch. The iOS app author has written several books in iPhone and Mac programming so would presumably be making the most of that dev environment.
