Geekbench 3.2.2
Benchmark your Android device with Geekbench

It used to be the case that benchmarking software was only available for desktop computers – PCs and Macs – but the surge in popularity of mobile devices mans that developers have been inclined to produce similar tools for mobile platforms. Geekbench is a well-respected benchmarking tool that is available for Mac, Windows and Linux, but there are also mobile versions available for Android and iOS.

The hardware market for Android devices is far more varied than for iOS and it is likely that you are unaware of just what hardware is to be found within the casing of your phone or tablet. The opening screen of the app reveal basic information about the system it is being run on such as the version of Android that is installed, what make and model of hardware is being used and the name and speed of the processor that is installed.

But things start to get a little more interesting when you select the option to run benchmarks. In doing so, you opt to put your Android device through its paces after which it will be assigned a rating so you can see how it compares to other devices in different areas. By performing test on integer and floating point processing as well as running memory tests, each area of your device can be given a rating and from this you can learn the overall rating for your device.

This is a great app for settling arguments about who has the fastest mobile, but it also provide you with a useful way of determining whether any of those tweaking tools you have been using are actually doing their job properly. Should you find that the figures returned by the benchmarks are significantly lower than expected, this could be indicative of a hardware problem that you should investigate.

What's new in 3.2.2?

- Bug fixes

Verdict:

While not quite as informative as the desktop app, this is still a useful tool for the curious mobile user.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
