I tried installing Geekbench 6 on a Microsoft Dev Kit 2023 with Qualcomm 8cx Gen 3 arm64 processor and it only installed the uninstaller. Why no arm64 binary for Windows 11? You produce arm binaries for Mac OS and Android.

    We're hoping to release support for Windows on ARM with Geekbench 6.1.

    Same here on my Samsung Galaxy Book S with ARM processor. Geekbench 5 installs fine with both the Intel/AMD and the ARM engines. The Geekbench 6 installer on Windws ARM seems to be broken.

    Geekbench 6 for Windows on ARM is currently in preview. You can download it from the Preview Builds page: https://www.geekbench.com/preview/

    Same here on both Macbook Air M1 and mac Studio M1 Max, both with Parallels Desktop.

    The preview works basically (no GUI), but Geekbench 5 has been better, you had the choice to benchmark native ARM64 code or X64_64 code by the emulation layer of Windows 11 on ARM. At least now both are important.
