A A single-threaded, processor benchmark test.
As of version three of GeekBench, the scores have been split into single and multi core categories. The Single Thread CPU benchmark, like all processor benchmarks attempts to estimate how quickly a processor is able to perform a wide variety of calculations. The test issues as series of complex instructions to the processor and times how long the processor takes to complete the tasks. The faster the processor is able to complete the tasks, the higher the benchmark score. The GeekBench Single Thread CPU test only runs one stream of instructions rather than multiple parallel streams per core. The majority of consumer applications (MS World, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and most games), although multi threaded, rarely utilize more than one thread at a time, so this test, like any single threaded benchmark, can be seen as a reasonable real world test for typical consumer workloads.
