Geekbench 3 Released
Friday, August 16, 2013 - 2:17 PM EST
Posted by: Staff

Primate Labs today announced the release of Geekbench 3 for OS X and iOS users. Geekbench 3 includes 15 new benchmark tests that are designed to model real-world processor intensive tasks. The new tests cover a number of different application domains, including encryption, image processing, signal processing, and physics simulation. The software also includes 12 completely rewritten benchmark tests from Geekbench 2 and a completely new scoring system that separates single-core performance and multi-core performance into two separate scores.

While multi-core performance is becoming more relevant as applications are rewritten to take advantage of multi-core processors, single-core performance is still a very important metric because every application benefits from great single-core performance.

With Geekbench 3, if you know your applications can't take advantage of the latest multi-core processors, you can use the new single-core scores to find the fastest machine for your tasks.

Pricing for a single-user license of Geekbench 3 for OS X starts at $15 ($10 until August 31st). Genchbench 3 for iOS is priced at $0.99.
