AWS General purpose VMs history - Geekbench



Filter:


Geekbench 5 is a standard benchmark suite aiming to create a score from different system performance. From its outputs, we capture:

  • Single score: CPU performance
  • Multi score: Whole system performance

Graviton/ARM VMs are unfortunately not supported by this benchmark, only Intel and AMD x86 architectures.
