Fantastic FREE Graphics Benchmark!


I initially downloaded the app a but skeptical as the reviews report problems and the fact that the last update was over 1 year ago and no indication that the app supports iOS 11. Despite this I was able to launch and run the benchmark flawlessly on iOS 11 on both my iPad Pro and iPhone 6. The fact that this app is free makes it ever better. Geekbench 4 only tests the CPU performance, this app is the perfect equivalent to testing the GPU.

Can't event start the benchmark

The app can open but once I press run, the app crashes. (Extreme edition)

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback. We would have replied sooner, but Apple only recently enabled this feature. Even though you posted your review some time ago, we'd still like to help if we can.

We heard from several people who reported problems like yours, but their problems disappeared after Apple released iOS 10.0.3. It seems that there may have been some compatibility issues in the earlier versions of iOS 10.

To solve your problem, update your device to the latest version of iOS 10, then try running 3DMark again. You can reply by editing your review if you run into any other issues with our app.
