Primate Labs, the company behind the widely-used benchmarking tool Geekbench, launches a newer version of Geekbench 6. Phones and computers are becoming faster as technology advances, rendering previous methods of measuring improvements obsolete. Primate Labs has created new tests adapted for modern-day devices to keep up with these changes.
Geekbench 6: What’s New?
New Geekbench now includes several new tests, such as background blur during video calls, social media photo filters, and object detection for AI workloads.

These new tests intend to assess hardware’s ability to handle real-world workloads, becoming increasingly important as technology advances.
Reduced Focus on Single-Core CPU Tests
In Geekbench 6, Primate Labs has reduced the emphasis on single-core CPU tests. The number for the main core, according to the company, is no longer as important as real-world use cases extract power from various parts of hardware. With the rise of machine learning, multi-core CPU results have been updated to measure how cores “actually share workloads in true-to-life workload examples.”
