1. Are Geekbench3 and Geekbench4 scores comparable?
2. Are there any major changes in the way the scores are calculated that a user should know?
I ask this because I don’t see a difference in the multi core score with reduction in processor core count. I have seen the difference in scores in Geekbench3.

    Hi Krishna,
    ​ ​Geekbench 3 and Geekbench 4 scores are not comparable. This is because Geekbench 4 not only uses a different baseline to calculate it's scores, but it also runs new and updated CPU and GPU workloads. You can read more about these workloads here, and here. ​ ​Regards, ​Ariella

    I don’t see a difference in the multi core score with reduction in processor core count. Is this expected with Geekbench 4.

    I have seen the difference in scores in Geekbench3.

    Thanks

    Hi Krishna,

    There are many factors that can effect score results, even when running the test on the same machine. Can you send your device specs?

    I am running the test on Broadwell server under the same settings. With Geekbench3 when I reduce my core count to half there will be an impact on the Multi core score. But with Geekbench4 reducing the core count is not impacting the score.

    Thanks
    Krishna
