Good news for benchmark junkies, as one of the leading Android apps of this kind has today received a major update. AnTuTu Benchmark 3 brings a host of new features to the popular benchmark app, including a new dedicated 2D benchmark, and a 3D benchmark based upon OpenGL ES 2.0. Other changes include improved SD card detection and security features to prevent tampering with the app.

This version also improves support for a number of high-end devices, including the HTC Droid DNA and LG Nexus 4, both of which use Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip. Our Nexus 4 scores averaged around 17,500, a considerable increase over the 10,000 or so widely reported on the earlier AnTuTu 2.94. And our Droid DNA scored even higher, clocking in at just over 19,000.

The full changelog for the current version 3.0.1 can be found after the break. The free download can be grabbed from Google Play at the link above.
