Geekbench has come out with a nice update that brings improvements to the CPU and computing benchmark and also new compilers to its multiplatform benchmarking software.
Geekbench is one of the most popular cross-platform benchmarking tools and today’s 5.1 update for macOS, iOS, Android, Windows and Linux offers processor enhancements for AES-XTS and workloads machine learning. For computational benchmarks, version 5.1 improves the selection of the GPU buffer for Metal workloads on iOS, macOS.
Geekbench is a $ 0.99 download for iOS. Geekbench 5 for macOS / Linux / Windows costs $ 15 ($ 10 for macOS only) while Geekbench 5 Pro costs $ 99.
See the full release notes:
