Google has acquired Helsinki-based 3D graphics startup DrawElements for more than $10 million. The terms of the deal were undisclosed, but Arcticstartup.com reported that it was over $10 million.

DrawElements enables developers to test various GPUs across mobile devices. Google Android is used on all kinds of devices with different types of hardware so DrawElements will be useful for testing.

“We’re excited to announce that we’re joining Google. Thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way; we’re grateful for your support,” said DrawElements in a statement. “Over the next few months, we’ll be working with our colleagues on the Android team to incorporate some of our technology into the compatibility test suite. Stay tuned!”

Many of DrawElements’ executives will move to Google’s HQ in Mountain View, California. Several other team members will remain in Finland
