Geekbench 3 is Primate Labs' next-generation processor benchmark, with a new scoring system that separates single-core and multi-core performance, and new workloads that simulate real-world scenarios. Geekbench 3 makes it easier than ever to find out if your computer is up to speed.
Geekbench 3 features new tests designed to simulate real-world scenarios. This helps make Geekbench an invaluable tool to determine how your current computer (or your next computer) will handle your tasks and applications.
Geekbench 3 includes stress tests, which are tests that help determine the stability of your system. Stress tests help you find small problems with your system before they become big problems.
Every test in Geekbench 3 is multi-core aware. This allows Geekbench to show you the true potential of your system. Whether you're running Geekbench on a dual-core phone or a 32-core server, Geekbench is able to measure the performance of all the cores in your system.
Compare apples and oranges. Or Apples and Samsungs. Geekbench is available for a number of desktop and mobile operating systems, allowing you to compare the performance of different systems running different operating systems.
Geekbench 3 is currently available for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS.
Geekbench provides both 32-bit and 64-bit benchmarks. Find out how fast your 32-bit programs run today, and how fast your 64-bit programs will run tomorrow.

- Added a battery test for Android, iOS.
- Added a brief summary to "Share Results" email on iOS.
- Addressed 64-bit code generation issues on Android/AArch64.
- Fixed a crash that occurred on Windows 10.
- Fixed a crash that could occur on 32-core systems.
- Reduced the memory footprint of the BlackScholes workload.
- The biggest new feature in Geekbench 3.3 is the battery test. The new battery test is designed to measure the battery life of a device when running processor-intensive applications (such as games).
The test is meant to completely discharge a completely charged battery. While it's possible to run the test with a partially discharged battery (e.g., a battery with 75% charge) the test results will not be as accurate.
The recommended steps for running the test are as follows:
- Plug in your device.
- Launch Geekbench 3.
- Launch the battery test.
- Wait for your device to completely charge.
- Unplug your device. The battery test will start automatically. The test can take several hours to complete, especially on newer devices with larger batteries.
- Wait for your device to completely discharge and turn off.
- Plug in your device and wait for it to turn on.
- Launch Geekbench 3. The battery test result will display automatically.
- The test result includes the battery test runtime, the battery test score, and the battery level at the beginning and at the end of the test.
Here's what the different numbers mean:
Battery Runtime is the battery test runtime. If the test started with the battery completely charged and ended with the battery completely discharged then the test runtime is also the battery lifetime.
Battery Score is a combination of the runtime and the work completed during the battery test. If two phones have the same runtime but different scores, then the phone with the higher score completed more work. As with Geekbench scores, higher battery scores are better.
Battery Level is the battery level at the start and the end of the test.
