Recent articles

Geekbench 6, the most recent version of the company’s cross-platform benchmarking tool, has officially launched, according to Primate Labs. Geekbench 6 replaces the previous Geekbench 5, which was released in 2019. It features findings that more closely resemble the performance of real-world devices as well as compatibility with new hardware standards.

As a result of machine learning and other workloads, the new software steers clear of large reliance on single-threaded CPU counts. To more accurately “represent modern hardware and applications,” testing datasets have been updated.

  • Larger images that current cellphones can shoot in higher resolution (12 to 48MP)
  • Examples of HTML that adhere to current web design standards
  • a bigger image library for import test
  • more expansive maps for navigational tests
  • larger, more contemporary PDF samples
  • An expansion of the Clang workload.

According to Primate Labs, the tests are more similar to the workloads used by apps. They can better represent the file types that customers are anticipated to use or interact with within 2023. To provide more accurate cross-platform comparisons, Geekbench 6 has been modified to take better advantage of the GPU for machine learning.

Multi-core benchmarking has been updated and is now intended to assess how workloads are distributed among cores in real-world scenarios. Numerous recent tests assess users’ device usage. Updates have also been made to the current tests.

  • blurry backgrounds, like in video conferences
  • similar to the photo filters used in contemporary social networking applications
  • Finding objects for AI workloads
  • Importing and semantically tagging photographs and metadata using a photo library
  • Python text processing for markdown and regex conversion and parsing (more true to real developer use cases)

Geekbench 6 is free for all non-commercial personal use, and a 20% launch reduction has lowered the price of the Pro version to $79 for the next two weeks. Command-line automation, offline result administration, and other features are added by pro functionality. The Geekbench website offers a download for Geekbench 6.
