I apologize if this has been asked already but I couldn't find an answer to it. When I download Geekbench4 for Linux and unzip it, I am left with a geekbench4, geekbench_x86_32, and geekbench_x86_64 executable.

What is the difference between the geekbench4 executable and the x86_64 executable?

    Hi Kyle,

    Thanks for posting. The geekbench4 executable calls on either geekbench_x86_64 or geekbench_x86_32. It will run on geekbench_x86_64 by default, with the option to use the --arch command to run on 32 bit architecture (which will call on geekbench_x86_32).

    It is recommended that you use the geekbench4 executable, as it is better equipped for its intended use. Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll be glad to help out.
