In his blog post TouchXPRT Web test update, Bill mentioned that we would be releasing Web-based workloads for the community to try out. Although we developed them as part of TouchXPRT, the cross-platform nature of these tests suggested to us that they should stand on their own.

After seeking community input, we have decided to make them a separate benchmark. So, we are proud to announce WebXPRT. The first community preview will be available mid-next week. WebXPRT CP1 contains four 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.

As with all community previews, we are very interested in your opinion. Tell us what you like or don’t like about the workloads. Are there other use cases you’d like to see?

Now that we have three benchmarks, the old HDXPRT-centric model of the community needs updating. Earlier this week, a message went out to the community announcing that we will be reorganizing the benchmarks under the umbrella of BenchmarkXPRT. This reorganization will touch all aspects of the community, from the Web site to Facebook, Twitter, and even the memberships themselves. We’ll be rolling out these changes over the next few weeks, and we’ll keep you informed every step of the way.
