iGPU - FP32 Performance (Single-precision GFLOPS)

A benchmark is designed to determine graphics cards’ performance and speed, built into their central processor. It works in iGPU mode, FP32 Performance. The higher the rate is, the better it is.

Geekbench 5, 64bit (Single-Core)

A new approach to testing processor performance opens up the GeekBench 5 benchmark! A detailed under-load system analysis gives an accurate assessment of the quality. The higher the estimation is, the faster and more efficient the processor is. It is a version for testing a single core.

Geekbench 5, 64bit (Multi-Core)

A modern version of the GeekBench 5 benchmark reveals all opportunities and potential of your processor. As a result of testing, you can understand to what extent a processor is fast and efficient in operation with graphic apps or games.

Estimated results for PassMark CPU Mark

The authoritative benchmark PassMark shows how efficient the processor is in the overall performance rating. It takes into account the operation mode of all cores and supports hyperthreading. The benchmark is based on various scenarios for performing calculations, 2D and 3D modelling.
