Geekbench Benchmarks

I have published some benchmarks for servers I have currently am using in my home lab. Nothing earth shattering but I use GeekBench with is a great tool for gauging performance. These are not SPEC benchmarks they have their own criteria but they are a great resource and several large organizations use them.

Go here to see updated results:

Geekbench 5 Benchmarks

Macbook Pro and Mac Mini running macOS 15.5 (Catalina)

Geekbench 3 Benchmarks

Notice that GeekBench 3 had better numbers than Geekbench 5. I was running Mac OS X 10.11.1 (El Capitan)

Primate Labs changed the way they do tests between versions. I assume that Geekbench 3 is more like Geekbench 4 as far as tests go and that’s why the differential between 3 & 5 results.

Geekbench 4 scores are much higher than Geekbench 5 scores on the same hardware. … This allows Geekbench 5 to use more strenuous tests with larger workloads that put more emphasis on memory performance. There are no more individual memory tests: Geekbench 4 had memory copy, memory latency, and memory bandwidth tests.
