Geekbench has become the place to go to determine the strength of a smartphone and its CPU. For some, these are just numbers, but for others a benchmark is everything. The fact is that Geekbench has become a very relevant platform in the smartphone segment. It’s also commonly used by manufacturers to test one device before its release. Thanks to the website, we are able to discover specs prior to one device’s release. Today, a new step begins for the platform with the announcement of Geekbench 6.
Geekbench 6 comes with adjustments
Primate Labs has just unveiled Geekbench 6 today. As per the company, phones and computers are getting faster every year. As result, the previous methods of measuring improvements are getting out of the data at a quick pace. The changes include bigger photos, a larger library of images for importing tests, and bigger and more modern PDF examples. The app is now heavier across all platforms since it packs several new tests.

The brand-new Geekbench 6 reduces the focus on single-core CPU tests. As per the company, the number for the main core is no longer important as real-world use cases extract power from different parts of hardware. The final result is not just adding the performance of four different cores. The new tests will measure how cores “actually share workloads in true-to-life workloads examples”. The world of mobile tech mixes big and small cores for quite some time. However, desktops and laptops have caught up with the practice, so older Geekbench is not accurate.
The Geekbench 6 app also has better GPU calculation with new frameworks and abstraction layers. There will be a more accurate cross-platform comparison as Primate Labs integrated more ML acceleration and uniform GPU performance across platforms. The new app will launch for Android, Linux, Mac, and Windows. As usual, it will remain free of charge for non-commercial use. We expect some changes in the scores of upcoming leaked smartphones.
