Geekbench provides a comprehensive set of benchmarks engineered to quickly and accurately measure processor and memory performance. Designed to make benchmarks easy to run and easy to understand, Geekbench takes the guesswork out of producing robust and reliable benchmark results.
What's New in Version 4.1.0
Geekbench 4.1.0 brings the new Compute Benchmark to iOS. Written using Metal, the Compute Benchmark measures the performance of the GPU at executing common compute tasks such as image processing and computational photography.
An excellent benchmarking app!
Okay, so to start things off, I saw that the developers released this new version of the popular app, and at that point, it was free, so I picked it up before the date that you had to pay for the app. The reason why I got it was because of the popular YouTubers using the app to compare devices and general benchmarking. This happens to be my first version of one of these apps, (normally paid) so I felt pretty good about it. Now, a couple things to mention, one of them is a minor one.
First, I am aware of the fact that there should be more benchmarks coming soon, like battery testing and other benchmarks, so I won't mention that too much, because I can imagine that you guys are still working on those benchmarks.
And secondly, when I want to share my results, my only options are email & upload to your online results website. There isn't an option to share through other means, like Messages, AirDrop, and *especially* iCloud Drive. (and other cloud storage apps) iCloud Drive in particular is something that I would like to use as an option, as I'm one of the many people who use iCloud Drive as their primary storage. Currently, the way I have to get around this is to email myself, and save the "attachment", to iCloud Drive, then delete the email. This gets pretty annoying and I really don't want to have to get around this issue any more, so could you add more sharing options please? Thanks in advance! And btw, you guys are awesome! 😀👍
Fantastic, simple, user friendly benchmarking app
This app is great. It's very easy to navigate. Everything works well. I am experiencing one problem though. It may be the app or my device's fault. I'm not sure. Lately my iPhone 6s on iOS 10.3.1 has been scoring very low. Like thousands of points lower. I got a single core score of 1454 and a multi core score of 2485.. I've made sure to close all background activities and have repeated the benchmark several times. Not sure what's going on. Other than that I don't have any complaints. In the end, this app is worth it. I would definitely recommend it
Useful Information About Your Device
I find the benchmark information useful, especially when I am considering how much of an improvement I'll get if I move up from an older iPad or iPhone to a new one. (Of course you'll need to check the Geekbench website for info on devices you don not yet own).
Also handy is the apps ability to tell you exactly which device model you own (plus it's RAM capacity, and loads of other good geeky stuff).
In short - it's not an app I use often, but when I do I'm very glad to have it.
