Geekbench is one of the most popular benchmarking tools for testing PC, tablet, and phone performance, now available.
Geekbench 6 was released by Primate Labs. Like previous versions, it can benchmark CPU and GPU performance and give you a score to compare to other devices and hardware. The tests have been modified to better reflect modern software on a device.
The developers calibrate the CPU benchmark against a Dell Precision 3460 with a Core i7-12700 processor, which scores 2,500. It navigates OpenStreetMap, opens pages in a background browser, renders complex PDF documents, indexes and edits photos, and compiles code. A GPU benchmark checks support for OpenCL, CUDA, Metal (on Apple devices), and Vulkan APIs (new in Geekbench 6).

Like previous Geekbench versions, greater results are preferable. My M1 MacBook Air had 2,300 single-core and 8,538 multi-core CPU scores. After the exam, the results are uploaded online and opened in your web browser. You can then share the page URL. Perfect for showcasing your new iPad or custom-built PC.
Geekbench 6 supports Mac, Windows, Linux, Android, iPhone, and iPad. The Mac version requires macOS 11 or later, 4 GB RAM, and an Intel or Apple Silicon processor. Geekbench requires a 64-bit Intel or AMD CPU and 4 GB RAM for Windows 10, although ARM Windows is not supported.
The main site offers Geekbench 6. Automated testing, portable use, and offline storage require a premium edition.
