If you were shopping in a big-box retail store for an off-the-shelf PC, would having a concrete, comparative performance figure help your buying decision? Futuremark, maker of 3DMark and PCMark, has teamed up with Elkjøp Nordic — one of the largest computer chains in northern Europe — to benchmark its brand new PCs and organise them into categories for buyers to choose from.


Which is better for gaming — an Android phone or an iPhone? (The answer is obviously a proper big-rig gaming PC, a giant monitor and a comfy chair, but we won't get into that argument.) Three million mobile device benchmarks later, the creators of 3DMark have the definitive comparison of mobile graphics power when it comes to Apple's iOS smartphones and tablets versus the Android powerhouses of Samsung, Nvidia, Sony and Motorola.
