Principled Technologies and the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community release WebXPRT 3, a free online performance evaluation tool for web-enabled devices

Durham, NC — Principled Technologies and the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community have released WebXPRT 3, a free online tool that gives objective information about how well a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or any other web-enabled device handles common web tasks. Anyone can go to WebXPRT.com and compare existing performance evaluation results on a variety of devices or run a simple evaluation test on their own.

WebXPRT 3 contains six HTML5- and JavaScript-based scenarios created to mirror common web browser tasks: Photo Enhancement, Organize Album Using AI, Stock Option Pricing, Encrypt Notes and OCR Scan, Sales Graphs, and Online Homework.

“WebXPRT is a popular, easy-to-use benchmark run by manufacturers, tech journalists, and consumers all around the world,” said Bill Catchings, co-founder of Principled Technologies, which administers the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community. “We believe that WebXPRT 3 is a great addition to WebXPRT’s legacy of providing relevant and reliable performance data for a wide range of devices.”

WebXPRT is one of the BenchmarkXPRT suite of performance evaluation tools. Other tools include MobileXPRT, TouchXPRT, CrXPRT, BatteryXPRT, and HDXPRT. The XPRTs help users get the facts before they buy, use, or evaluate tech products such as computers, tablets, and phones.

TouchXPRT and WebXPRT benchmarks now available!

The BenchmarkXPRT Development Community, which Principled Technologies (PT) administers, is pleased to announce the release of the TouchXPRT 2013 and WebXPRT 2013 benchmarks.

TouchXPRT 2013 is a benchmark for evaluating the capabilities of Windows 8 and Windows RT devices. TouchXPRT runs tests based on five user scenarios (Beautify photo album, Prepare photos for sharing, Convert videos for sharing, Export podcast to MP3, and Create slideshow from photos) and produces results for each of the five test scenarios plus an overall score.

WebXPRT 2013 is a browser-based multi-platform benchmark that uses representative Web-user scenarios to compare the performance of almost any Web-enabled device. It contains four HTML5- and JavaScript-based workloads: Photo Effects, Face Detect, Stocks Dashboard, and Offline Notes. Because the workloads are all HMTL5 based, they run on a wide variety of devices and operating systems—from iPad tablets to Android phones to Windows computers. In addition to scores, WebXPRT 2013 gives a report on the HTML5 capabilities of a device.

The benchmarks are now available to all from http://www.TouchXPRT.com andhttp://www.WebXPRT.com. Prior to today’s public release, the benchmarks were available exclusively to members of the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community and were used in multiple media reviews to evaluate a wide range of devices.

Members of the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community significantly influenced the development of the benchmarks by providing feedback on the initial design specifications and participating in beta testing. To learn how you can participate in the development of future versions of our benchmarks and stay up to date on the latest information, visit our Web site or look for us on Facebook and Twitter.
