Most computer users are familiar with performance measurement software that tells a user how much memory the computer is using or how much processor capacity is being committed to the current operation. However, how does a user know if what is being seen is normal or not? Unless a person is quite familiar with hardware testing, there’s no simple red, yellow, or green status to find.
Geekbench performance software takes the guesswork out of a computer metric tool by adding a wonderful tool the mix. The software allows users to compare their same computer setup to that of other Geekbench users to determine good or bad performance. In addition to the obvious question, “Is my computer working?”, Geekbench allows users to see both metrics and how they compare to similar machines under the same testing. Doing so, a user now has the ability to see if his machine is dragging or working at stellar speed.
The software comes in both 32 and 64-bit packages, allowing use on multiple operating system platforms. Measurements include processor metrics and SIMD commitments. Additionally, Geekbench comes in both MAC OS and PC versions, so everyone can benefit from the valuable tool’s offerings. Recent upgrades even allow Geekbench to be run on the iPhone 4S, expanding the capabilities of performance knowledge to the smartphone world.
