The Windows version opens but freezes at the Geekbench 5 splash screen. Looking to run the new benchmarks because I have the GTX 950 in my Mac Pro 1,1. The system requirements mentioned Pentium 4’s, which contradicts the 64 bit requirement. Anyhow I was expecting a Legacy Edition that could run on older 64 bit Macs, like my OG Mac Pro. It’s also appalling that the Mac version doesn’t support the 3,1 which is full 64 bit EFI and all, just limited because the OS.

    If you need to benchmark older hardware and operating systems, we still support Geekbench 3 and Geekbench 4 on macOS.

    Let me know if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to help out.
