Could you please give me more information on your current situation? What sort of error messages are you receiving and what are the spec of your computer. The GPU test is located in the Compute tab on the left hand side of the program. Please try to run it with all other apps closed, and your device connected to power. If the problem persists, let me know and I will look into it further.

Thanks for the prompt and courteous reply. I’ve attached a screenshot of the GPU (Compute) image, on the windows version I can select the GPU to test, as well as the test type (OpenCL, CUDA). I am not given that option on the MAC. When I press the Run Compute Benchmark button the screen goes away and immediately returns.
Thanks for letting me know about this issue. I'm going to file this with our engineering team so they can take a look at it. My apologies for any inconvenience this is causing you! As soon as I have more information about this, I'll follow up with you. In the meantime, please try a system reboot. If it does start to work, please let me know.

Tried V 4.1. OS X El Capitan , Nvidia Web drivers (newest), CUDA drivers newest
Same, only OpenCL compute rnns well (14000 Result)
CUDA - click run does nothing, no error message, also nothing in the console log!!!
Metal (new) - same as CUDA, run does nothing, no error messagealso nothing in the console log!!!
Metal in generall works for me, no problems running some Metal benches.
Same is for CUDA. no problems.
I think there should be some debug code added to figure out what goes wrong.

testing a range of mac to compare, but not able to run graphics test on MBP5,5 with Nvidia 9400M (see attached screen shots) - other macs are being tested fine, so is this MBP just too old? It's not a big deal, just curious.
Thanks for your patience, and I apologize for the delayed response.
Thanks for your report Hoy. Geekbench 4 supports Mac OS X 10.10.5 or later, and it should work fine on a MacBookPro5,5 running OS X 10.11.6. What kind of error are you experiencing? Does the benchmark start, and if so when does it stop?
Andreas and rnsjunkmail, could you tell me what model you are running the benchmark on so that we can investigate further?

Progress, thanks. After upgrading to macOS 10.12.6 (Build 16G29), and upgrading to the latest Geekbench, and using gfxCardStatus to use the discrete GPU (nvidia GeForce gt330m), got numbers for the OpenCL workload : https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/compute/1194970 . Still not able to select the workload, or the card to test. When using gfxCardStatus to enable the integrated (Intel) adapter the Compute test immediately returns without numbers as before. Here’s the CPU tests link https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/4286868. Thanks.
By "workload", do you mean the API, or are you trying to run a Geekbench workload like Sobel in isolation? Geekbench workloads can only be run individually through the Geekbench 4 Pro command line interface.
You mentioned previously the error that appears when you clicked the Run Compute Benchmark button. What kind of error are you currently encountering which is preventing you from choosing the details of your compute test?
I'm afraid that we cannot provide a debug version of Geekbench.
I just tried Geekbench and when I click on run for the GPU test, after two seconds gets back to the same start screen without further error messages.
I have a MacBook Pro mid 2010 .. as in the first screenshot..
my Nvidia GPU and intel integrated as in the second..
GPU test not working for this mac..
I gave that iMac away to a friend so I don’t know. If I remember correctly the solution as is often the case was to go to a later version of Geekbench. I however realized that newer versions of s/w were going to force me to upgrade so I moved to a later iMac. Sorry I cannot be of more help.
