North Carolina State University Senior Design Center students help the XPRTs

DURHAM, NC --(Marketwired - February 09, 2016) - Principled Technologies (PT) today announced that it sponsored a senior project at the NC State University Computer Science Department Senior Design Center. PT asked a team of three seniors involved in this project to build a workload that reflected their interests. PT and the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community will evaluate adding this workload to existing BenchmarkXPRT tests in the future.

The BenchmarkXPRT tools, or XPRTs, are apps that empower people all over the world to measure how well their devices handle everyday activities. The XPRTs do this by running workloads that simulate common tasks -- like editing photos and writing notes. To help make sure these workloads represent a wide range of viewpoints and ways of using devices, PT reached out to young adults to see what mattered to them.

Senior Design Center team members Rachel Ashburn, Brien Croft, and AJ Smith chose to create a mini-game that shows how well different devices handle games. Input like this potential workload helps better reflect how people really use their devices.
