Professional solutions for performance benchmarking
From configuring hardware to making purchasing choices, critical business decisions are driven by benchmark data. Software intended for consumer use may not be robust enough to meet your business needs. UL’s benchmarking solutions for professional users provide advanced functions and capabilities, delivering accurate, consistent and impartial results you can trust.

The UL Procyon™ benchmark suite offers a range of benchmarks and performance tests. Each is designed for a specific use case and uses real applications when possible. All tests in the suite share a common design and feature set that makes it easy to consistently measure PC and mobile hardware performance.
Our Testdriver™ benchmark automation platform additionally simplifies endpoint performance benchmarking by helping you test and monitor PC systems in multiple locations remotely. With features designed for IT professionals who manage large computing environments, Testdriver offers easy configuration, quick setup, and convenient, cloud-based control.

Benchmark Development Program
As we build out the UL Procyon benchmark suite, adding additional benchmarks and testing options, we will continue to work closely with our industry partners to ensure that every Procyon benchmark is accurate, relevant and impartial.
The Benchmark Development Program (BDP) is a UL initiative for building partnerships with technology companies. The objective of the BDP is to create relevant and impartial benchmarks by working in close cooperation with program members.
BDP members can gain a deep understanding of benchmark workloads, right down to the source code, and provide input at every stage of benchmark development from the initial specification to the final release.
