When diagnosing your Kodi device, one of the common tests is checking how well the CPU of your device performs, so you can compare it to other CPUs. The CPU Benchmark add-on uses a utility called Pystone for testing the Python performance, which Kodi is based on. Don’t be alarmed by poor results as it doesn’t necessarily mean your device is slow.
Here are the instructions on how to install CPU Benchmark:
- Launch Kodi
- Click Add-ons
- Click the Add-on browser icon
- Click Install from repository
- Click Kodi Add-on repository
- Click Program add-ons
- Click CPU Benchmark
- Click Install
- Wait till you see an Add-on installed message
Once executing the add-on you see the benchmark for your CPU running Python compared to other CPUs.
