Looking for Novabench 4?

Ever since its launch in 2017, Novabench 4 has been a popular choice for performance testing. However, computer technologies have advanced significantly since then, with the introduction of new instruction sets, the growing prominence of ARM processors, and notable progress in storage, GPUs, and other areas. Starting from February 2023, Novabench 5 will replace Novabench 4 as officially supported benchmarking tool.

While test results obtained with Novabench 4 remain applicable for x86-64 architectures, Novabench 5 offers improved precision in new areas that were not covered by its predecessor, such as memory latency.

Updates for Novabench 4 will no longer be provided, and only existing license holders will be able to download and utilize Novabench 4. Furthermore, the option to submit scores online using Novabench 4 is no longer available.
