On the new Macs with M1 processors, there is no option for doing a Compute test for Metal. It only offers Compute for OpenCL. Is this an oversight or perhaps something that is still being worked on? It seems like a rather prominent omission.

    I was able to run one using 5.3.1 today: https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/compute/1880389

    Not sure what's different about your setup. Everything I run on M1 seems a little less reliable than I'm used to. I've had to reboot the Mac and run Geekbench multiple times to get results I trust.
