Running Single Benchmark, i.e. INT, FP or Stream

Is it possible with any of the versions to run just a single benchmark and not the entire suite? I'm interested in running just the FP, INT, memory and stream benchmarks separately to profile my system. I don't want them all run at the same time, as that would pollute my information.

If there was a commandline option similar to running 32 or 64 that allowed one to run just one of the benchmarks, that would be useful. If it works for Android, even better, as I installed that on my tablet and it was pretty sparse in options.

Obviously, if the source code was available this would be easy to do, but I didn't see any licensing option including the Pro that had this feature. That's another feature you might want to consider for an ultra pro licensing option for companies.

    Matt -

    Thank you for your message.

    You can run a single benchmark from the command line using the --workload switch. For example, the following command will run just the Blowfish benchmark:

    geekbench --workload 101

    Here are the codes for each workload:

    101 - Blowfish
    102 - Text Compress
    103 - Text Decompress
    104 - Image Compress
    105 - Image Decompress
    107 - Lua
    201 - Mandelbrot
    202 - Dot Product
    203 - LU Decomposition
    204 - Primality Test
    205 - Sharpen Image
    206 - Blur Image
    302 - Read Sequential
    304 - Write Sequential
    306 - Stdlib Allocate
    307 - Stdlib Write
    308 - Stdlib Copy
    401 - Stream Copy
    402 - Stream Scale
    403 - Stream Add
    404 - Stream Triad

    We have a command-line version of Geekbench for Android that we make available to our Pro licensees. You can get in touch with me at john at for more information.

    We also have a source license program where we make the Geekbench 2 source code available to companies and organizations who are interested in modifying Geekbench for their internal testing needs. I can provide you with a quote if you're interested in that option as well.

    Let me know if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to help out.
