    Geekbench 5 is out. Post MBP results!

    Gotta add that these guys are still crippling the Mac GPU results. The scores used to be the same as Windows and then last year without any changes on the user side the macOS GPU results came sliding down.

    Ran them all back to back so I'm sure there is a bit more left in the tank.

    That 4 cores setup is pretty good.. Should have gone for that instead of the 13" 2017.. But hey that's what you get when you need a computer at the last minute.

    I ran the OpenCL (score of 5014) and Metal (score of 529) benchmarks a second time, allowing some time in between tests, but the results did not improve. That's the power of integrated graphics! Even hardware video decoding makes the fans spin like crazy.

    For some reason, the RAM frequency is only half of what is actually installed.

    your ram speed is normal, it's a DDR (Double Data Rate) so 800MHz times 2, so you have 1600MHz

    Out of curiosity I check my old iMac too....interesting results...

    I ran OpenCL again just to verify Nvidia's poor performance with OpenCL back when the 775M was relevant.

    Same 2018 15" i9 MBP listed above.
    Tested a bit more and had a slight improvement on Multi Core: 5897

    Also tested using Win10 and Single Core was generally the same (highest score was 1279), but Multi Core was slightly higher on average. My highest Multi Core score was 6080.

    That doesn’t make sense. The multi core score should be roughly equal to the single core score x however many cores the processor has. 2736 sounds like a three core processor, not a quad core. Do you get that result after retesting?

    That would be it with near perfect scaling/no throttling, but that doesn't happen.

    My 6 core 2018 15" has a single core score of 1258, multiplying that by the number of cores (6) then I should have a multi score of 7548, but in reality my multi core score is 5939, which would mean I have a 4.7 core CPU only looking at my single core score for reference.

    My 12 core 2013 Mac Pro had a 776 single core score on the 1 run I ran on it. Multiplying by 12, then I should have a multi score of 9312, but my actual score was 7663, which would be just under 10 cores (9.8) with perfect scaling.

    It's a combination of two things.

    Amdahl’s law highlighting how the individual test in the benchmark aren't (or can't be) parallelized perfectly across all cores. Cryptography and deep learning/machine learning benchmarks won't parallel compute well where as compressions and rendering test typically will. You can actually look at the Geekbench 5 results and compare individual single core test to their multi core counterpart to see what can leverage more cores better.

    The i5-4670 specifically is older by todays standards and lacks instruction sets for acceleration for certain task. This is why my i5-8259U in my MBP has a similar single core score using a lower frequency and less power.

    Throttling is a always a concern of course however with the i5-4670 I'm hitting computational limits well before power and thermal limits of 84w (max is around 45-50w) and 90-100c (max is around 65-70c).

    Like most benchmarks the results are factored from individual specific benchmarks. While Geekbench claims....

    Screen Shot 2019-09-14 at 11.22.25 AM.png

    That doesn't mean those individual task are optimized as well as a program that utilizes them. But mostly it means that higher overall results doesn't make the best CPU for your specific application. An Intel Core series CPU that is faster than an Intel Xeon CPU in benchmarks doesn't mean much as both will shine at specific things.
