AndEngine – Physics Box2D Extension – Benchmark

Category: AndEngine,AndEnginePhysicsBox2DExtensionNicolas Gramlich @ 12:23

Hello Community,

I just did a test on the AndEnginePhysicsBox2DExtension. The test adds animated(!) boxes and circles (Ratio 50%-50%) to a scene and logs the FPS.

210 Objects (105 Boxes + 105 Circles)AndEngine Physics Box2D Extension Benchmark-Scene

This is the resulting graph on three different devices:

  1. Nexus One – Android 2.2 – 800×480 pixels
  2. HTC Tattoo – Android 1.6 – 320×240 pixels
  3. HTC Dream/G1 – Android 1.6 480×320 pixels

In my opinion the result on the Nexus One running Android 2.2 (Froyo) is very very impressive – 200 Objects at almost playable 20 FPS!

Even on first-generation, low end devices you can get more than 30 FPS with about 40 objects.

Best Regards,
Nicolas

    Hello,
    that’s interessting… do you have any information how the framerate on low end deviced would be with static (not animated) objects?

    I had a bit of a shock when I started running the tests. 2-4FPS on my Nexus S, until I realised the USB cable was still plugged in (debugging). Unplugging the USB cable saw it jump to well over 30FPS. I presume the benchmark removes the results that people submit with the USB attached?
