Geekbench 4.1.0
Measure the performance of your CPU and RAM with this straightforward benchmark

Geekbench is an easy-to-use benchmark that will quickly deliver a verdict on your CPU and memory performance.

Why should you care? If you're overclocking your system, say, then Geekbench will reveal how much extra speed you've squeezed out of your system. If you're thinking of buying a friend's PC or laptop then the program will show you just how fast it is. Or you can use the online Geekbench Result Browser to see how well your system performs against others, which could help you to discover how well optimised it is, as well as telling you what sort of improvement you might see from upgrading to various processors.

If you've tried benchmarks before then you'll know they can be intimidating, giving you a host of options to configure before you get started. Geekbench is different, though, because, well, it has no options, preferences or settings at all. All you have to do is click the "Run Benchmarks" button, and a mere 40 seconds later (on our test PC) the report appears.

This is fairly straightforward, too. So you get a single Geekbench score that represents the performance of your system. You can then zoom in to see single values for CPU integer performance and floating point performance, memory and memory bandwidth speeds. And if you need more, then you're also able to see the individual tests that are used to calculate these figures, so for instance you'll see both the sequential read and write speeds for your RAM.

And finally, a click or two will allow you to save your report locally, or upload the figures to Geekbench where you can compare them with others.

Please note, this trial version of the program is limited to 32-bit benchmarks. You'll need to purchase the program to unlock the 64-bit benchmarks.

Geekbench 4.1 brings these changes:

- Brings Metal Compute Benchmarks to iOS and macOS
- Changes to several of the CPU and Compute workloads

Verdict:

Geekbench is a simple yet very useful benchmark that makes it quick and easy to measure your PCs CPU and RAM performance and compare it against similar systems

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
