We love transparency, so you will find all major changes of all BenchMate components on this site.
Version 0.9.3 removes all Geekbench versions from the Big Bundle. It is still supported though, but you have to install it yourselves. You can thank Primate Labs for this, its founder made it abundantly clear to me, that he doesn't care about having his vulnerabilities and poor choice of time measurement fixed. Oh, and I've fixed a bug in the Geekbench Compute test integration with AMD graphics cards. Why bother.
- All Geekbench versions removed from the Big Bundle as requested by Primate Labs itself.
- Some AMD graphics card could not be correctly detected within the Geekbench integration, which resulted in a failed result due to missing GPU core and memory clock detection.
Version 0.9.2 fixes two bugs in the Geekbench 5 integration and a driver/timer issue on AMD CPUs (32 bit HPET).
- Two bugfixes for the Geekbench 5 integration due to the fact, that the QPC timer function is now used 14 million times during a run, while it was merely somewhere between 2,000 and 10,000 in earlier Geekbench versions.
- Fixed a synchronization/contention bug for 32 bit HPET timers.
- Bilko/HWBOT for his thorough bug report
Version 0.9.1 brings Geekbench 5 integration.
- Support for Geekbench 5's CPU and Compute tests including the new Vulkan support
- Added Geekbench 5.0.0 to the big bundle
Version 0.9 is a mandatory bugfix and security release.
- Many bugs on Windows 7 fixed
- HPET skew vulneratibility fixed
- Added guarding and tracking to child processes of benchmarks (necessary for Geekbench 3+4)
- Process Priority settings defined in BenchMate are now inherited by child processes
- Added GPU load to the result dialog as rolling average (needs less performance and no memory)
- Fixed graphics card matching between OpenCL/DirectX results and the sensor management (ie: Vega cards)
- Improved GPU name on result dialog for some graphics cards (ie: Vega cards)
- Reimplemented BenchMate's security service handling. The services are fixing/reinstalling themselves now, if necessary.
- Removed the Windows Build Number from the result dialog (not considered a necessity for moderation)
- Reduced result dialog height (compressing memory module information if possible, removed labels for results and system data)
- Integrated latest version of HWiNFO (6.11)
- Bugfix for submitting Ryzen results to HWBOT (CPU name could not be matched)
- Improvements and bugfixes for custom error message dialog and bug report tool
- Reimplemented result capturing for Geekbench 3+4's to be compatible with the tryout version
- Added conversion for AMD OpenCL GPU codenames for Geekbench Compute scores
- Geekbench 3.1.5 is now bundled instead of the lastest version (it's said to be faster)
- Reimplemented CINEBENCH R11.5, R15 and R20 result capturing. It's independent from UI rendering now, window minimize tweak will be possible.
- Added file integrity check for CINEBENCH textures to detect tampering (it's no longer necessary to show the full CB window for valid results on HWBOT)
- CINEBENCH R20 now overrides the default process priority from "below normal" to the correct setting
- Andi/Noctua for giving us access to a Vega card
- 0.0/HWBOT user for his HPET skew bug report
