Geekbench 3 for Linux ARM?

Last year, you released a version of Geekbench 2 for Linux on ARM:

Is there a Geekbench 3 for Linux on ARM release? I'd love to use it to benchmark a set of micro-Computers (raspberry pi, beaglebone, Intel Galileo, etc) I'm comparing.

    Hi, the same question here - any possibility to test your geekbench 3 with rk3188 arm device ? armv7hl fedora 20 running fine. Best regards and good luck !

    Hi folks,

    Thank you for your messages. We don't currently have a version of Geekbench 3 for Linux/ARM available but we're hoping to make one available soon.

    In the meantime let me know if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to help out.

    Hello John,
    We are almost into May so I thought that I would ask if there has been any update regarding a timeline or road-map for Linux arm V7 & V8. In the V8 there is the option to run 32 or 64 bit applications with the 64 bit Linux kernel so this would be an interesting bench mark to run for us....

    Hi Chris,

    We're still interested in providing Geekbench 3 for Linux/ARM, but we don't have a timeline for its release. Most likely, though, it will only include support for ARMv7 as we do not have access to any ARMv8 hardware that runs Linux.

    If ARMv8 support is a priority for you, I would recommend considering a Geekbench 3 Corporate License. The Corporate License includes source code access, and a number of our Corporate Licensees have been able to produce a Linux/ARMv8 port with minimal difficulty. I would be happy to provide you with more details, along with a quote, if this is something that you might be interested in?

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

    Hi John,

    It's been about a year since this was opened and over 6 months since the last update. Any word on an ARMv7 version of GeekBench 3? The new Raspberry Pi 2 was just announced (, and I'd love to be able to use Geekbench to see how it stacks up to the original and growing range of single-board computer options.

    any ARM Build out yet for v3.3?
    there are many linux distros for arm btw, like Ubuntu, Debian, Arch,Fedora
    and there are many boards too like cubieboard, raspberry pi, ODROID-U3. Banana Pi + 10 more

    all the boards can run on android so there is one wordaround to get Geekbench 3.3 to work on ARM based boards but we would prefer a bin for ARM6 or later

    Do release Geekbench v3 for ARM v7 linux :)

    Raspberry Pi 2 is quite interesting.

    Another ARM service where it would be useful to be able to use Geekbench as a benchmark:

    Agree with the above about Scaleway! Can we get an update on how things are looking for ARM?
