Geekbench 5 released, includes new CPU and GPU benchmarks

Primate Labs releases Geekbench 5 with new CPU and GPU benchmarks

Primate Labs has just announced its latest Geekbench software, with Geekbench 5 now released including a boat load of new features and tweaks.


Geekbench 5 kicks things off with a brand new CPU benchmarking suite that tests your system based on what its respective workload would be, with these including augmented reality and machine learning. Geekbench 5 also boosts the "memory footprint of existing workloads to more accurately account for the effect memory performance has on CPU performance".

The new Geekbench 5 CPU Benchmark also packs new modes of multi-threaded benchmarks, with the new software also better capturing the performance of different multi-threaded applications on personal computing devices.

Another big note here is that Geekbench 5 is 64-bit only, dropping 32-bit support completely. Geekbench 5 also now supports Vulkan under its GPU benchmarking, as well as CUDA, Metal, and OpenCL. The Compute Benchmark also packs new benchmark tests that "model algorithms that are GPU accelerated in modern applications. These include computer vision tasks such as Stereo Matching, and augmented reality tasks such as Feature Matching".
