Hello i tested the new geekbench 5 from my mi8 (sd845) and the result was 386 single and multi 1464 while other sd845 devices have single 500 and multi 2200. (sd835 devices score better than me lol).

    Most like you're comparing GB4 and GB5 results and GB5 scoring system has changed.

    It is likely you would have to kill all running apps in the background one at a time to achieve a score like those. Certainly doable but incredibly annoying.

    Thanks for reaching out to us about this, and I apologize for my delayed response. You can find Geekbench 5 scores for the Xiaomi Mi 8 that have been aggregated from results uploaded by users here.

    Your device's scores are somewhat lower than the average for that device. To get the most accurate Geekbench scores, we recommend running the application while there are no major background tasks running (e.g. downloading applications or syncing a music library). We also recommend running it under typical temperature conditions.

    If your device produces scores that are substantially below the average for that model, we recommend running several Geekbench tests over a few days. If the results are consistent, it may be a sign of hardware or software issues, and it may be useful to visit to local service centre for further investigation.
