Check out the results and see how your phone performs when compared to other smartphones.
Has the role to test your device’s CPU (Central Processing Unit) performance when performing common tasks. Patterns that simulate real-world applications are applied and your iPhone receives a score based on its ability to process them in a timely manner. Results are displayed for both Single Core and Multi-Core tests.
They include extended System Information, along with numerous other ratings like: Crypto Score, Integer Score, Floating Point Score, Memory Score.
After checking your device’s Geekbench Score you can compare the results with other iPhone models by taping the Single-Core or Multi-Core tabs available at the top. You can notice that the iPhone 7 Plus has currently the highest score “3306” when comes to Single-Core performance, followed closely by its smaller sibling, the iPhone 7. Situation looks the same when comparing the Multi-Core benchmark results.
Fact: Results are influenced by both hardware and software specs. This means that a fresh iOS update, will have a direct impact on the Geekbench score.
This new test has the role to check your iPhone’s graphics performances. It measures the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) performance when asked to complete common tasks such as image processing. The result is known as the Metal Score and represents and overall assessment of the iPhone’s graphics performance. The tests applied during the Compute tests are: Sobel, Histogram Equalization, SFFT, Gaussian Blur, Face Detection, RAW, Depth of Field and Particle Physics.
The Compute tab available at the top of the results page provides a comparison of your device with the rest of the iPhone and iPad models.
If you used Geekbench in the past, you probably know that the previous versions have also included a Battery test, that provided a strength score for your iPhone’s power source. For, the moment, this benchmark isn’t available in the 4th generation of the app. However, the developers have confirmed that the Battery test is on its way and will return in future updates.
Fact: If you have Geekbench 3 installed on your iOS device keep it, because it’s currently the last generation that comes with the Battery benchmark!
