Hi folks,

Considering that one of the tests in the latest GB5 CPU benchmark is machine learning, in the case of Apple's SOC, does it tap into the dedicated Neural Engine or not?

    Geekbench 5 and Geekbench 6 do not use the Neural Engine (or any other NPU) to measure machine learning performance.
