For those Android users into specs and hardware, benchmark results are the bread and butter of boasting. These days there are a growing number of applications, however for most, the core list usually includes Quadrant, 3D Mark, and AnTuTu. With over 100,000,000 users, the latter-most app claims to be the most popular of its kind in the world. Today, AnTuTu has been bumped up to Version 5.5, and with it some impressive new features including a fresh redesign and 64bit CPU testing.
According to the Google Play Store, AnTuTu v5.5 contains:
- Completely redesigned User Interface.
- Detection 64 bit CPU and 64 bit Android system.
- Fixed 3D test can not be completed on some device.
- Fixed some bug and crash.
As evident by the screen captures, the visual overhaul is quite significant, and while not exactly Material, it’s every bit as colorful and oddly reminiscent of recent TouchWiz builds. Ironically, despite the Chinese developer’s claim of bug-fixes, the application has crashed twice while trying to load it for purposes of this article, and crashed once during the testing period, thus there are still some digital insects left to squash.
The inclusion of 64-bit CPU testing means that the benchmark is now able to produce more accurate results when testing the latest hardware from companies such as NVIDIA, which made up the heart of the recently released HTC Nexus 9. AnTuTu can be downloaded on the Google Play Store here.
