(SOLVED) Possible to install geekbench in Coreelec environment?

Is it possible to install this software in Coreelec?

Would be interesting to help paint a picture of performance with direct comparison to other platforms. (fre tv / shield etc)


Using these instructions was not helpful.

Thank you in advance again for the help!!

It would be amazing if this could be made possible!


Any help would be appreciated!

It’s possible to ‘install’, but it doesn’t seem to work. I’m getting “Permission denied” error.
I don’t think it supports ARM, I could be wrong, though.
Edit: The normal Linux package is for x86/x64, it’s not for ARM.
I couldn’t find a Linux ARM version.

There is an arm linux version , found here. Unfortunatly it is geekbench 2. This isnt too bad, however, as geekbench still officially posts geekbench 2 results on their website.




How could I get this running?


Got this up and running if anyone is interested!

Here is a comparison of my N2 ar 2 ghz vs a Nvidia Shield X1 at 2 ghz (hexa vs octa core)

N2 is roughly +48 Percent faster!! (Ofcourse linux vs android isnt direct comparison)

How did you get it to work? Because I failed at that :slight_smile:

I would also be interested how to install Geekbench on my CE-box…

So you gota do the following:

First, SSH into your box! Then…

Download geekbench arm for linux, place in main storage.

Type the following exactly, hitting enter after each line.

wget http://geekbench.s3.amazonaws.com/geekbench-2.4.2-LinuxARM.tar.gz

tar -xzvf geekbench-2.4.2-LinuxARM.tar.gz

cd dist/

mv Geekbench-2.4.2-LinuxARM /storage

cd /storage/Geekbench-2.4.2-LinuxARM



Easy, thanks. I was trying to run it from a USB SSD :man_facepalming:

N2: http://browser.geekbench.com/geekbench2/2673437
Le-Potato: http://browser.geekbench.com/geekbench2/2673440
X92 (S912): http://browser.geekbench.com/geekbench2/2673483
PC: http://browser.geekbench.com/geekbench2/2673444 (for comparison purposes)

it works, thanx!

This would be cool to have integrated into coreelec :slight_smile: not sure if possible.

Oh by the way! For a low power device, the N2 truly is a beast! (Sub 12W devices limited in image)

I don’t think so, it’s not free software in that way.
Besides, TBH, I don’t see much point in it on CE in general, and N2 specifically.
It’s a very outdated version of the benchmark. It’s likely missing any sort of optimizations for newer architectures, be it x86 or new ARM chips. So it may be fun to run, it probably isn’t very representative compared to other hardware.

You make a strong point!

Wow the N2 is pretty fast compared to other hardware in its class. Must be like night and day compared to the nVidia Shield when you consider Linux runs Kodi a lot faster to begin with.

I can say from my own use the N2 is super responsive compared to my Le Potato which is my daily driver right now. The N2 will probably slip on in there pretty soon, mostly just a matter of getting it all set up.

I added a S912 bench to my post.

Would be interesting to see benchmarks for an Odroid-H2 or similar like an entry level Intel NUC.

With celeron N3150

Im more impressed with the n2 each day. Power useage is crazy low for its performance (sub 5w )

Can you run the newest geekbench build on the N3150?
It’d be interesting to know how it compares to other hardware in a more recent and more optimized benchmark.
