Geekbench 5 Pro Mac Results

September 6th, 2019 by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist

Geekbench 5 has significant changes to the CPU and GPU tests. We ran it on three of our Pro Desktop Macs.


GEEKBENCH 5 CPU TEST(HIGHER score = FASTEST)

GRAPH LEGEND
iMP 3.2GHz 8-core
= 2017 iMac Pro 8-core 3.2GHz Xeon W-2140B CPU, 32GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 ECC DIMM

nMP 3.0GHz 8-core= 2013 Mac Pro 8-core 3.0GHz Xeon E5-1680 CPU, 64GB of 1866 MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM
cMP 3.33GHz 12-core = 2010 Mac Pro 12-core 3.33GHz Xeon X5680 CPU, 96GB of 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM

Geekbench 5 Single-Core test

Geekbench 5 Multi-Core CPU test

 

GEEKBENCH 5 GPU COMPUTE (HIGHER score = FASTEST)

GRAPH LEGEND
iMP VII = 2017 iMac Pro 8-core with AMD Radeon VII GPU in eGPU
iMP V64 = 2017 iMac Pro 8-core with AMD Radeon Pro Vega 64 GPU
nMP VII
= 2013 Mac Pro 8-core with AMD Radeon VII GPU in eGPU
nMP D700 = 2013 Mac Pro 8-core with AMD FirePro D700 GPU
cMP VII = 2010 Mac Pro 12-core with AMD Radeon VII GPU
cMP VegaF = 2010 Mac Pro 12-core with AMD Radeon Vega Frontier GPU
cMP 580 = 2010 Mac Pro 12-core with AMD Radeon RX 580 GPU

Geekbench 5 Metal GPU test

Geekbench 5 OpenCL GPU test

WHAT DID WE LEARN?

The Geekbench 5 Single and Multi-Core CPU test no longer includes a memory speed component. The score is an average of 21 CPU intensive tests. You can't compare the score to Geekbench 4 results.

The Metal GPU Compute test has also changed. The score is now an average of 11 tests (up from 8). And, again, you can't compare the score to Geekbench 4 results.

The OpenCL GPU Compute test has also changed from 8 tests to 11.

You can test your Mac for free by downloading a trial version.
