3DMark benchmark test available for iOS

Futuremark is bringing the iconic 3DMark benchmark software to iOS. A newly available app puts your iOS device through its paces to test its gaming prowess. The tests come in three forms of an "Ice Storm" render, to test GPU and CPU performance.

3DMark is free on the iOS App Store. The 3DMark community site also scores various smart devices and pits them against each other, battle royale style. The announcement cheerfully notes that if Apple debuts its new iOS device this week, you can use 3DMark to hold their claims up to the cold ice storm of reality.
