Futuremark da de baja su benchmark Pacekeeper

25 Jul 2015


Futuremark anunció mediante un comunicado de prensa que dejará de soportar Pacekeeper, su benchmark de navegadores web destinado a medir el impacto de JavaScript en el desempeño del navegador.

La medida responde a que el hardware y navegadores modernos son lo suficientemente buenos como para que el rendimiento en JavaScript no sea una diferencia notoria en la experiencia de uso a diferencia de la gestión de recursos, consumo de memoria, energía, plugins, extensiones y otros que pueden impactar favorable o adversamente el desempeño de nuestro navegador web.

Quienes gusten aún pueden acceder a Pacekeeper mediante su sitio web pero Futuremark recomienda que la gente migre a PC Mark 8 y PC Mark para Android. Adicionalmente la compañía descontinuará el soporte para 3DMark Vantage en Steam debido a la antigüedad del benchmark.

Comunicado de prensa

With the public release of Windows 10 coming up next week it’s a good time for us to review our current line up. As a result, we have decided to move Peacekeeper, our browser benchmark, to our list of unsupported products.
Peacekeeper is a universal browser benchmark for measuring JavaScript performance. More than seven and a half million people have tested their browsers and mobile devices with Peacekeeper since its release in 2009. But today, competition between browsers has largely shifted from speed to features.
Modern browsers are typically fast enough on a wide range of hardware, and the differences in speed in everyday use are trivial. A browser’s features, extensions, and memory use are now much more likely to be the deciding factors reducing the relevance of pure JavaScript performance benchmarks.
For future testing of Windows PCs, we recommend PCMark 8. And for Android smartphones and tablets, we recommend PCMark for Android. Both include tests for measuring web browsing performance based on real-world activities instead of the narrow, synthetic workloads found in JavaScript benchmarks.
Even though Peacekeeper will be unsupported after July 29, you will still be able to use it and your saved results will continue to be available at http://peacekeeper.futuremark.com/.
Changes to the availability of other benchmarks
With the launch of Windows 10 we will also be removing the Windows RT version of 3DMark from the Windows Store, and 3DMark Vantage will no longer be available to buy on Steam, though both of these benchmarks will continue to be supported. 3DMark Vantage will be available from the Futuremark website, while 3DMark for Windows RT will be offered to enterprise and business customers on request.
