Decisions regarding the selection of applications by BAPCo committee members are data-driven, derived from a diverse range of market indicators. The final choice of applications is democratically chosen, reflecting the collective intelligence and discerning judgment of the entire BAPCo membership.

CrossMark is a native cross-platform benchmark that directly compares desktops and touch-enabled devices across Windows, iOS or macOS, Android, Linux, and ChromeOS. CrossMark users can install the benchmark and produce results in minutes. CrossMark reports an overall system performance, as well as several sub-scores indicative of system performance in a variety of accurate usage models.

SYSmark and MobileMark use real-world applications. This gives a more realistic view of performance, unlike many synthetic benchmarks, which only focus on limited aspects of a system. SYSmark and MobileMark are the premier PC benchmark that measure and compare system performance using real-world applications and workloads.
