It is rumored that Geekbench can use Intel's AMX instructions, but the release notes do not indicate this. Is this true?

    Geekbench 6 uses Intel AMX instructions to accelerate machine learning on quantized networks. The Photo Library and Object Detection workloads use quantized networks and benefit from AMX instructions.

    For more details on which workloads benefit from which instruction sets please see the Geekbench 6 Internals document.
