A new mode of operation for Geekbench: Sustained performance

Geekbench currently tests only peak performance by running tests which don't take a lot of time to complete and making pauses between them. This is good for estimating peak performance but absolutely won't work for sustained performance when the user wants to run long-running tasks, e.g. compilation or rendering and many users absolutely need to know what their systems are capable of.

It would be great if you added a new mode of operation called "Sustained performance" which works this way:

1) Run any MT tests for a minute without any pauses/breaks
2) Run each of MT tests for half a minute without any pauses/breaks (so it will take exactly 10 minutes to complete)

Compute the results for 2.

Thank you.

    We're hoping to re-introduce a sustained performance test in Geekbench 6.
