Benchmarks

Geekbench 5 Multi-thread
GeekBench is a cross-platform benchmarking utility. It runs a series of tests that simulate real world tasks. GeekBench multi-thread utilizes all cores, this makes it suitable for benchmarking servers.
Geekbench 5 Single-thread
GeekBench is a cross-platform benchmarking utility. It runs a series of tests that simulate real world tasks. GeekBench single-thread utilizes only one thread. The majority of applications (MS Word, web browsers, games) rarely utilize more than one thread at a time which makes this test suitable for measuring typical workloads.
