[prMac.com] Waterloo, Canada - Primate Labs has released Geekbench 2.2, an update to their popular cross-platform benchmark. Available for Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows, Geekbench 2.2 features an improved interface and hardware stress tests.
"This new release is a huge step forward in usability" says John Poole, founder of Primate Labs, "With a simplified interface and users will find it easier than ever to discover if their computer is up to speed"
Geekbench 2.2 also includes a new hardware stress test which helps users determine if their computer is experiencing hardware problems. The stress test fully loads all of the processors and cores in a system to uncover hardware problems.
"Most users only notice when things go horribly wrong with their computers. Smaller problems, like an underperforming fan, can go undetected for weeks or months.", says Poole. "Geekbench's new stress tests will help users detect these problems sooner, ensuring their computer is working as expected."
Geekbench 2.2 also includes a new command-line interface on Mac OS X and Windows. The command-line interface provides enterprise users, system administrators, and power users with a way to automate Geekbench, making it a valuable addition to diagnostic toolkits everywhere.
