Restults of Geekbench benchmark is based on best results which means that it takes overclocking into account which means that this score you can have for a short time. And results are very misleading.

Problem is, that under stress CPU lower its frequency e.g. from 2.8GHz to even 1GHz.

It is not possibe to guess which CPU is better in long term usage.

Would it be possible to introduce Geekbench benchmark with long stress benchmark and add another score results.

Usually notebooks can have same score as desktop computers, but for shorter time.

Thank you.

    Thanks for reaching out to us about this. I'll pass your suggestion along to my team and see if we can add more support for testing systems over a long period of time. Currently, with Geekbench 4 Pro, you can specify a number of iterations for each workload (or write a short script to run the entire benchmark via the command line several times in sequence), which may suit your needs as well.

    All the best,
