Whenever a new computer system makes its glorious debut, all of the tech magazines are quick to publish benchmark results, and people in bookstore cafes across the nation stare and drool at those colorful bar charts showing the system's performance in photo processing, number crunching, and the latest build of a game that no one plays anymore. But how can you tell how YOUR specific system measures up? By running Geekbench, obviously!

Geekbench provides a comprehensive set of benchmarks that give you an instant evaluation of your processor and memory performance. Easy to run and easy to understand, Geekbench is everything that you need to determine how obsolete your old system (or how outstandingly awesome your new system) truly is. It comes in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors, and is available for a variety of hardware platforms.

How many cores are you rocking? One? Two? Four? No matter what the number, Geekbench will handle benchmarking with ease and grace, since every processor benchmark is multi-threaded and multi-core aware. Plus, with One-Click Benchmark, you don't have to waste time adjusting settings to match some "standard" test system -- run it, and you're running Geekbench with the same parameters as all other Geekbench users! Want bragging rights? Use Geekbench, then upload your results to the Geekbench Result Browser! It's like drag racing, but without the risk of fiery death.

Chintan Karnik This was marketed here on BDJ while ago, but didn't buy it at the time. When I needed a tool for testing VPS hosts I purchased Geekbench 2 at full retail price.

Found Geekbench to be an excellent tool for comparing Windows server cpu & memory benchmarks. For disk benchmark look into CrystalDiskMark.

Bob Horton Hi!

Any chance of a discount on the pro version? I like the ability to run in standalone mode from removable media.

D J Application did not function correctly on an AMD cpu based desktop running XP Pro SP3 with 3GB of ram. Application hung on "collecting system information". After 4 hours and 4 minutes of collecting system information, I attempted to stop the app. The "collecting" process continued even after the clicking the "Stop" button on running benchmarks. Had to use Windows Task Manager to kill the app. Uninstalled using Revo which found one registry entry left behind by the app's uninstall routine.

Chintan Karnik @DJ I had trouble on some windows machines, on those servers I usually run the tool from commandline ie:

"geekbench_x86_32.exe --windows-sysinfo"

or the 64 bit version if you have a registered copy. It produces a similar benchmark report as the gui tool and even give you a url to your report if you want to see it in a browser.

John Poole If Geekbench hangs when collecting system information that's a problem we'd like to address. You can get in touch with support at support at primatelabs dot com.
