Geekbench is a processor benchmarking platform that ranks chipsets based on their multi-core and single-core performances. While evaluating the multi-core scores, the platform runs a stream of instructions simultaneously to generate an aggregate result. The same procedure is followed to calculate single-core scores. The faster a processor fulfills the instructions, the higher is its score on Geekbench.
