    You can run the Compute Benchmark on Linux by using the --compute flag. Complete usage instructions are available by using the --help flag.

    --compute doesn't work.
    The GPU test doesn't seem to be available on Linux

    Hello,

    Thanks for letting us know, and I apologize for the delayed reply. Does the application display any error message after you use --compute?

    Hi Colin,

    it's been more than a year now and there still doens't seem to be a way to benchmark the gpu in Linux with either geekbench 3 or 4.

    You asked about error messages: " unrecognized option '--compute'", and then it displays the full help.

    Can you look into it and give the definitive word that gpu isn't supported in Linux?

    Thanks
    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    I'm very sorry for the delayed response. GPU benchmarks are meant to be supported for Linux in Geekbench 3 and 4. Could you let me know the entire command that you're using when the program doesn't recognize the option, so that I can narrow down this issue? In addition, could you let me know the Geekbench version number(s) that you're using, the operating system that you're running Geekbench on, and what GPU you're using on your device?

    All the best,

    Hello Colin,

    I'm using Geekbench 4.2.0 under Ubuntu 17.10 on a MacBookPro 8,3 (i7 w/Radeon HD 6770M).

    The command I'm typing is:
    sudo ./geekbench4 --compute

    The returned error is:
    [1219/124224:ERROR:src/interface/console/consolemain.cpp(875)] Geekbench encountered an internal error and cannot continue. Please contact [email blocked] for assistance.

    Internal error message: clGetPlatformIDs.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Hi Michael,

    I see, thanks for following up. I'm not certain what would be causing that problem, but I'll see if there are troubleshooting steps we can take to diagnose or resolve the issue. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

    All the best,

    Thanks for looking into it.

    On my MacBookPro, I triple boot Mac/Linux/Windows10. I’m benchmarking to see what the affects of the various video drivers are under each OS.

    Having GPU numbers for Linux would be great.

    Please let me know if you need anything else.

    Hi,

    I'm very sorry for the delayed response. In this case, it is likely that there is an OpenCL configuration error on your machine which is preventing Geekbench from using the API. Unfortunately, it's difficult for us to provide installation or maintenance advice for specific APIs. I recommend checking to ensure that your OpenCL configuration is correct and functional, and running the Geekbench command again after making these changes. I'm sorry that I can't be of more help.

    All the best,
