I used 32bit because it was free.

I'm also using 3TS ssdt for temperature and battery life concerns :)

5k is still admirable.

Doix, you have any further replies about the SSDT tables for the GT540?

I have a i5-2430M, 4Go DDR3 1333Mhz, nVidia GT540M and 500Go HDD and I get 6500+ with Geekbench 64bit

Has anyone noticed that when you update to 10.7.3 and use Chimea v1.7.0 you can't actually use both memory slots? or is it just me???

Just stumbeled upon something very interesting related to our Intel Wifi-Cards. I have been following this guy for some time and he has made significant progress lately.
Now, there is some hope that these will work with full airport compatibility eventually! See:

Heres my result:

http://browse.geekbe...ekbench2/561821

Still don't understand why Processors is at 0? Im going to put my test hard drive back in this weekend to have a fiddle with the latest developments and updates, Im buggered if I'm going to mess up this one :worried_anim: , worked flawlessly for months now thanks to Doix's and everyone else's hard work on the forum...

I don't understand, because it seems to understand there are 4 cores/threads on it, even with 0 CPU unit... Weird, when you know a 2310M as only 2 cores with 4 threads...!
When you boot in -v and look at the lines of the CPU, does it seem to be initialized?! I think that you would better make a fresh install of OS X, to be sure there's not something wrong with it.

I'll post you my Geekbench score in a couple of minutes, we have nearly the same config :) The difference is CPU (2430M) and GPU (GT540M)...

Here's my Geekbench score (64-bit) : http://browse.geekbe...ekbench2/561836
And here is a 32-bit one, to compare with your 32-bit one : http://browse.geekbe...ekbench2/561839

I think it is, just restarted it in -v. Ran Geekbench in WIn 7 Ultimate just and was around the same score as with OSX, hmmm maybe the 20m difference in processor makes the difference :angry: damn it. Will see what results I get at the weekend with my other HD in with a fresh install...

I think there's something wrong because your memory score is lower than mine too, but we have the same : 4Go @1333Mhz... I've +/-1000 more than you have for both memory score. And for the CPU I've +/-2000... I don't think it is so different between a 2430 and a 2410... !
Try with a fresh install. I know that under Win7, in 32-bit (because I didn't buy the 64-bit one for Win7, only for OS X) I've the same score than under OS X 32-bit mode (+/- 6000).

Is there somebody who have his card reader working? Because it seems like I can't read my SDHC 8Go card...
I don't know if it's on mine or if everybody has the same problem :)

I never got around to test the reader, in theory it should be supported since we have drivers.. try booting with arch=i386 maybe the drivers are not fully 64bit compliant. Oh, if you have speedstep patch you might want to install the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext because you will get KP.

My Geekbench score has been arround 7500 (Lion + i7-2670, 8GbRam, 2 Gb video, 750 Gb + 3TS_SSDT)

My question is that in win 7 I got arround 9500, this means that my laptop runs better win than macOS??

Is there any difference between installing SpeedStep with Doix's pakage 6 and installing it the manual way (1. Follow those instructions SpeedStepper including the MSRDumper kext (LOAD IT FROM THE TERMINAL DO NOT INSTALL IN EXTENSIONS))

If install with Doix's package, have I got to incluide MSRDumper kext or is it included?? (I try to install it after using Doix's package and the terminal says that file/directory not found)

I also had problems updating to 10.7.3 (I have had to reinstall it all, nevermind)

Thanks.

did you follow instructions from DoiX tutorial? That is to replace the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and rebuild caches / repair permissions?
With me no problems at all installing 10.7.3

(I only had to replace the audio kexts to make audio work again)
