Primat Labs has published Geekbench 5. This popular cross-platform benchmark can be downloaded over here. The new version is exclusively available for 64-bit systems, Primate Labs says dropping 32-bit support enabled them to incorporate larger data sets and longer running times, resulting in a more accurate test than ever before.
Geekbench 5 has new CPU benchmark tests, new GPU benchmarks, support for Vulkan, and a new Dark Mode user interface for macOS 10.14.
The Geekbench 5 CPU Benchmark includes new benchmark tests that model the challenges your system faces when running the latest applications. These tests use cutting-edge technologies, including machine learning, augmented reality, and computational photography.
Geekbench 5 also increases the memory footprint of existing workloads to more accurately account for the effect memory performance has on CPU performance.
Finally, the Geekbench 5 CPU Benchmark includes new modes of multi-threaded benchmarks, allowing threads to work co-operatively on one problem rather than separately on different problems. With the addition of different threading models, Geekbench 5 better captures the performance of different multi-threaded applications on personal computing devices.
GPU Compute Benchmark
Geekbench 5 includes several improvements to the GPU Compute Benchmark.
The most exciting change is that the Compute Benchmark now supports Vulkan, along with CUDA, Metal, and OpenCL. Vulkan is the next-generation cross-platform graphics and compute API. Vulkan Compute Benchmarks are available on Android, Windows, and Linux.
The Compute Benchmark also includes 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.
