Geekbench 3 supports more real-world performance tests

Primate Labs has released Geekbench 3, the latest version of their processor benchmarking tool for Mac, Windows, Linux, Android and iOS.

Geekbench 3 is a processor benchmarking tool that provides scores to show how fast your computer or device is working. The new release is the first major update to Geekbench in more than half a decade, so there are a lot of changes.

Among those changes are 15 new benchmark tests which model real-world processing tasks like encryption, image processing, signal processing and physics simulation. A dozen benchmarks have been rewritten to be more representative of real-world use. Geekbench also nos differentiates single-core and multi-core processor performance.

iOS users wil see a new interface optimized for Apple's forthcoming iOS 7, along with new features like automatic benchmark archival and Dropbox integration.

I always like to see how other machines compare, think it is interesting to see raw specs from time to time. Even though that does not show anything for actually usability a feel lol.
