Geekbench is releasing ARM tarballs in preview e.g. Would be nice if this package could eventually also support aarch64 with this.

Thanks HurricanePootis, I applied you patch. Note that I did not add the _avx2 symlink, because the main geekbench6 binary automatically selects the correct version, on all modern machines this is already AVX2.

You can see which version it used on the results web page, it either says "6.0.0 for Linux AVX2" or "6.0.0 for Linux x86 (64-bit)". If anyone wants to run a specific version this is of course still possible, just start from /opt/geekbench/geekbench_avx2 or /opt/geekbench/geekbench_x86_64.

In my testing on AMD Zen 2 the AVX2 version produces a about 4% higher score.

@dada513 The -bin suffix rule only applies to packages where source code is available.

Hey, geekbench6 has two executables in it, one for normal x86_64 and one for avx2. Also, it has a new geekbench-workload.plar file. I have made a patch file to get the new stuff into the PKGBUILD, and in general for geekbench6

shouldn't this be -bin?

linuxninja: Sure, switched to sha512 now.

linuxninja commented on 2020-05-29 23:09 (UTC)

Just saw the update. Still seeing md5sums in the PKGBUILD... can you update to at least sha256sums?
