Primate Labs has revealed the third generation of the most widely-known benchmarking software, Geekbench 3 on multiple platforms.
Geekbench 3 brings a slew of new benchmark tests. The company expresses that these tests are aimed at modeling the real-world processor-intensive tasks. The tests focus on a ton of domains, like signal processing, encryption, and physics simulation.
The company has imported over a dozen of tests from the former version and completely re-written them so that they are now more delineative of the real-world apps and usage scenarios, again letting for a sharp score.
The updated version also brings a new scoring system, which provides isolated single-core and multi-core scores; in the former iterations, the scores were combined together into one.
If you are an iOS user, you will encounter a completely different interface. The app sports a new look that suits the flat interface of iOS version 7. The app also supports Dropbox integration that allows you to share your results with others without any need to visit Geekbench Browser. There is also an archive feature that lets you easily view your former test results.
Those who purchase the Geekbench 3 before August 31 will be benefited with a special introductory pricing, which is $5 off for a single platform, $10 off for a cross-platform license, and $50 off for a professional license.
