Geekbench 6 for Linux ARM64 (Raspberry Pi, Asahi on Mac, etc.)

I was wondering if a version of Geekbench 6 for ARM64 or aarch64 devices is in the works. There was a nice preview tryout build available for RISC-V and ARM64 in the past for 5.4.4, but it never saw any updates.

It would also be nice to have to compare with Windows on ARM devices too, once the Windows ARM version of Geekbench is available.

    We've got a preview build for Geekbench 6 for Linux/AArch64 available here:

    We've also added a preview build page where you can get the latest version of each preview build:

    Thanks! I've been testing the 6.0.2 preview on Ubuntu 22.04, and noticed that at least on an Ampere Altra workstation with 92 CPU cores, there are two separate issues:

      1. Like with Geekbench 5, it identifies the CPU (model M96-28) as having 1 CPU, 1 core, and 96 threads.
      2. It never seems to complete the multicore tests, and it gets stuck on a different test each time—it seems like it only spreads the job over a few cores, minimally.

    Geekbench 5 score, for reference, on the exact same workstation:

    @geekbench please reach out if you need access to resources to debug this.

    Thank you for letting us know. We have access to an 80-core Ampere Altra server through Hetzner, so we'll attempt to reproduce it there.

    Thank you! Maybe at some point an Ampere Altra Dev Kit or Platform could find its way into your test lab too ;)

    I'm able to reproduce the issue on the 80-core system. What's interesting is that this wasn't an issue a week ago on the same system:

    This is going to be an interesting issue to debug.
