New 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited benchmark test for iOS and Android

We've added a new test to 3DMark for making chip-to-chip comparisons across mobile devices and operating systems. 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited is included in the iOS edition and can be added to the Android edition by updating to the latest version, available now from Google Play.

3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited provides an accurate way to measure component performance without vertical sync, display resolution scaling and other operating system factors affecting the result..

In Unlimited mode the rendering engine uses a fixed time step between frames and renders exactly the same frames in every run on every device. The frames are rendered in 720p resolution "offscreen" while the display is updated with small frame thumbnails every 100 frames to show progress.

Quote from: ZoolookThose scores are amazing - but curious to know how it can be twice as fast as an iPhone 5 (practically) when all other benchmarks show otherwise?

So much about cross-platform comparisons...

At least the score increases proportional to amount of overclocking (my Nexus 4 can stand ~ 20% OC)
