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 and 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.
