What is a GB3 file?
A GB3 file is a test result saved using Primate Labs Geekbench 3 Pro, a cross-platform PC benchmarking application. It contains a record of how a computer's CPU or GPU performed during a Geekbench performance test. GB3 files contain a series of performance-related scores; higher scores are better.
Geekbench 3 Pro is a program that allows PC users to check how their computer's CPU and GPU are performing. To test their CPUs and GPUs, Geekbench users run performance tests, known as benchmarks. After a user runs a benchmark, Geekbench 3 Pro outputs the results as a series of performance-related scores.
Users can save their Geekbench 3 Pro benchmark results as GB3 files. This allows users to load and review results in Geekbench 3 Pro at a later date. To save results as GB3 file, users must:
- In the GUI version of Geekbench 3 Pro, select File → Save as....
- In the command-line version of Geekbench 3 Pro, use the geekbench3 --save command.
