Dell Joins EEMBC To Collaborate On Industry Standard Benchmark Development

EL DORADO HILLS, Calif., April 5, 2012   /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) today announced that Dell Inc. (Nasdaq: DELL), a leader in worldwide innovative technology, business solutions and services, is the consortium's newest member. Dell has joined the association's Consumer Subcommittee, which includes the working groups focusing on developing mobile device benchmarks, especially in the area of smartphone and tablet benchmarking.

EEMBC was formed in 1997 to develop meaningful performance benchmarks for the hardware and software used in embedded systems. EEMBC benchmarks help predict the performance of embedded processors and systems in a range of applications (i.e. automotive/industrial, digital imaging and entertainment, networking, office automation, telecommunications, and connected devices) and disciplines (processor core functionality, floating-point, Java, multicore, and energy consumption). The new EEMBC BrowsingBench and AndEBench provide unbiased measurement of the browsing and Android experience of smartphones and other connected devices.

"We welcome Dell to the consortium and look forward to the insight that they can offer to help EEMBC define and create our next generation AndEBench and BrowsingBench benchmark suites," said EEMBC President Markus Levy. "Dell involvement in our working groups will ensure a fair and equitable benchmark for the industry."

"As a member of the Consumer Subcommittee, Dell will utilize EEMBC benchmark standards to help select the most effective processing solutions for our next generation of tablets and mobile devices, as well as contributing to EEMBC BrowsingBench, AndEBench, and other relevant benchmark suites" said Brian Zucker, Director of Performance Engineering at Dell. "Benchmarks such as BrowsingBench benefit our customers by enabling industry standard performance measurements for key user activities like web browsing."
