...coated papers with unmatched levels of recycled content and the dedicated work of all of our employees," said Stephen L Silver, CEO of FutureMark. "We explored many options to avoid this action, but the brutal reality for all coated paper manufacturers today is that falling demand and pricing pressure from lower-quality uncoated substitutes has driven prices to near historic lows. Combined with massive increases in energy costs over the winter, this pricing pressure has made it impossible for us to continue our Alsip operations at this time."
We can also see quite a variance on the tablet front. ASUS " second-gen Nexus 7 has sub-par performance among the rest of the products in this chart, but it delivers some awesome battery-life - perhaps not surprising given its ability to hold a much larger battery. Then we have Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1, which offers the best performance of the bunch, but fails to deliver the same kind of impressive result with the battery-life."
"And while it's always been possible to run 4K tests with customer settings in 3DMark, using a dedicated 4K test will provide a common reference point..." Futuremark noted in a press release
Thus, reliance on the old benchmarks "can actually lead to design changes that are wrong for the real application mix or add unnecessary components or complexity to the system" Dongarra says. The new benchmark will be called HPCG, for High Performance Conjugate Gradients
