BAPCo® Simplifies Cross-Architecture Benchmarking With CrossMark
BAPCo®, a non-profit consortium of leading PC hardware manufacturers, today unveiled CrossMark, a new cross-architecture performance benchmark that simplifies system performance and responsiveness measurement using common and relevant workloads. Supporting functionality for the most popular operating systems - including Windows, iOS and macOS - CrossMark is based on widely used open source applications to assess system performance scores in the areas of Productivity, Creativity and Responsiveness.

Accurately and objectively measuring system performance and responsiveness has traditionally been a time-consuming, difficult process. Compounding the issue, alternative methods to measure performance often produce scores uninformative of system performance in common, day-to-day user tasks. Whereas alternative benchmarking tools could involve a lengthy and complicated setup process, CrossMark users can quickly install the software natively on the system and be up and running in a matter of minutes - with measurement runs as quick as 5 minutes to complete. At its conclusion, CrossMark reports an overall system performance and responsiveness score, as well as several key sub-scores indicative of typical day-to-day system performance.
"It's critical for us to provide our partners - and the industry at large - an easy to use benchmarking tool with touch support for capable systems to reliably measure common system performance," said Eric Jenkins, President of BAPCo. "With CrossMark, users can take the deep and rich information to assess their systems - and ultimately optimize their customary workflow."
Additional features and highlights of CrossMark include:
