Install Geekbench on Linux (Tutorial)

How to install Geekbench 4 and Geekbench 5 on Linux

If you want to install and run Geekbench 4 or Geekbench 5 on Linux, follow this tutorial. The following instructions can be used on:

  • a local computer running any Linux distribution
  • a remote Linux server (VPS, shared or dedicated hosting…) with access to the command line

I mostly use Geekbench to compare the performance of small VPS instances running Ubuntu Server.

1. Install Geekbench 4 and Geekbench 5 on Linux

You do not need to run Geekbench as root (or use sudo).

1.1 In your home directory, create a temporary directory and enter it:

cd
mkdir geekbench-tmp
cd geekbench-tmp

1.2 Download the latest Geekbench 4 and / or latest Geekbench 5 and extract the archives:

wget https://cdn.geekbench.com/Geekbench-4.4.4-Linux.tar.gz
tar -zxvf Geekbench-4.4.4-Linux.tar.gz

wget https://cdn.geekbench.com/Geekbench-5.4.5-Linux.tar.gz
tar -zxvf Geekbench-5.4.5-Linux.tar.gz

2. Run Geekbench 4 and Geekbench 5 on Linux

2.1 Enter Geekbench 4 directory and run it:

cd Geekbench-4.4.4-Linux/
./geekbench_x86_64

2.1 Enter Geekbench 5 directory and run it:

cd Geekbench-5.4.5-Linux/
./geekbench_x86_64

Once Geekbench has finished running it will display a link to the results, which could look like this:

Install Geekbench on Linux (here: AMD Ryzen 5900X 12-Core on Linux Mint)

3. Uninstall Geekbench

To uninstall Geekbench on Linux, simply remove the temporary Geekbench directory:

cd
rm -r geekbench-tmp
