Linux command line CUDA compute fails to run

Why does the CUDA compute option fail to run? Only the OpenCL compute runs. Using the command line help function the displayed syntax is:
./geekbench4 --compute CUDA

All this does is return to command prompt.
./geekbench4 --compute
 does run the OpenCL benchmark which is stated to be default. Why doesn't the CUDA compute benchmark run?

    Hi Keith,

    Thanks for reaching out. What output does ./geekbench4 --compute-list give you?

    What happens if you try the following command?:

    ./geekbench4 --compute CUDA --compute-platform-id 0 --compute-device-id 3

    Alternatively, what happens if you replace the number after --compute-device-id with 0, 1, or 2?

    Have you purchased a license yet? Only OpenCL is available in the Tryout version, so the CUDA Compute Benchmark will not run until you unlock either the regular or pro features. Here is a chart that compares the different versions: https://www.geekbench.com/versions/

    No, I was just running the test for comparison purposes to the Anantech Geekbench4 tests on RTX 2080Ti.  I was unaware that the Tryout version was limited.  I never found that chart you linked on the website till you just showed me.
    What tests are performed in CUDA mode?  Are they the same tests as in OpenCL?

    Yes, the workloads are the same for each Compute API. You can check out descriptions for each workload here: https://www.geekbench.com/doc/geekbench4-compute-workloads.pdf

    Here is some more general information on interpreting Geekbench 4 scores, which includes some more information about the Compute benchmark: http://support.primatelabs.com/kb/geekbench/interpreting-geekbench-...

    Let me know if there is anything else I can help with!
