Geekbench is a cross-platform benchmark tool for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. While Geekbench is still under heavy development, we think it's useful enough that other people might be interested in running it.
Geekbench tries to measure the performance an average application can expect from the computer being benchmarked. As such, all of the benchmarks in Geekbench are written in platform-neutral C and C++, and have no platform-specific optimizations, and Geekbench is compiled with what we consider the de-facto standard compiler for each platform, with the compiler switches suggested by the compiler for release code.
