Yep, when I want to play game, or just to dabble around with spy/adware I just boot into Wintendows.  Whats really sad is your screaming fast OC'd 266mhz is probably more useful than Windows on my new PC/Mac!    :)

Here's a question for everyone... my xbench scores beat a mac mini by around 25points.  But, my cpu scores were lower than the mini because of this test -> vecLib FFT.  The mac mini had a score of 82.90 (2.73 Gflop/sec), and my score was 13.77 (454.22 Mflop/sec).  They are two very different chips, but what causes the difference in the numbers, whats that benchmarks relevance to speed, and if it is relevant.. is there something driver wise slowing it down?

Edit:  forgot..  my proc=AMD3000/2.31Ghz      Vs.    MacMini proc= G4/1.42Ghz.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Could quite possibly be due to the lack of altivec and the SSE2 patch...

Intel Pentium M 753 @ 1.2ghz
512mb ddr 2700
80gb hdd @ 4200
Intel 855GME Graphics

I wonder where I rank. I always wonder how this compares to a system with functioning core graphics and quartz extreme.

Personally, I'm clueless as to how its running any Quartz tests when profiler makes mention of the lacking of such. But that's another thread, and another topic.

LOL. What a piece of {censored}. 16.28 was the average. Oy... OS X is crappy-hardware friendly then. It runs great.

I might make a php page to store all this info, and get rankings etc.

I'll prolly do that tomorrow actually.

An amazing 12.65!
HP NX9010 2.8GHz P4, 512MBs PC2700, integraged broadcom wireless, 80GB HD. I think I'v narrowed my problems down to complete lack of support for any ATi motherboard chipsets. Using AppleGenericPCATA.kext. Slow slow slow, but this has talked me into buying a mac. I'm going to sell this laptop and get an iBook or something similar,

Now this is weird. I would've thought TPS would have the ideal kit for osx86. His score is 39.93.

How does ZX81 get a 48.15 with almost half the cpu speed?

:)

I ran Xbench twice on a Mac Mini 1.4x at the Apple store last night and both times got 47.xx. Those Minis are perky little boxes and I would cobble together an x86 box if I thought it would be comparable.

Maybe this question belongs in its own thread but are there advantages in 64-bit and/or Hyper-threading with osx86?

I hope this helps for comparison.
Good Luck guys!

OSX86 isn't compiled with 64bit compat. Also, some people report that disabling hyperthreading gives you a better xbench score. Not too sure about general performance though as I dont have a HT enabled CPU (its a 1.8ghz crudbox).

specs are here: http://forum.osx86pr...?showtopic=1910

scored 17.59 (ouch)

isnt xbench running in roseta, which would be why intel systems score so much lower than powerpc? (sorry if this it totaly stupid and posted somewhere else already, too lazy too look)

Nope, Xbench is now a universal binary :)

Quit using xbench to compare x86 to ppc. It is an invalid comparison on this benchmark. xbench is farely useless in general really, but people like numbers I guess. :)

Yeah, it was supposed to be just a general 'Post your X86 OS X results' thread.. but then PPC people joined the bandwagon! Not that its a problem at all :D
