MacBook Pro 2.4GHZ Oct 2011 release

Novbench =1242

Open GLViewer= scores around 238-239

Luxmark= 1254

Cinebench CPU = 5.60

Cinebench OpenGL = 43.43

Gekbench 64bit = 11,920


Asus G74SX see Signature for details

Novbench =1242

Open GLViewer= scores around 630-700 range

Luxmark= 2420

Cinebench CPU = 5.01

Cinebench OpenGL = 31.39

Geekbench 64bit = 10,520


My Novabench and Luxmark scores are more than double the newly MacBook Pro release. Is it because of the AMD 6770M graphics chip versus my GTX 560M chip?

It does score a bit better on the Cinebench OpenGL and GeekBench but not by much.

I think it's because Geforce 500 series are not supported by OSX or because OSX powermanagement is locking your gfx card on lower clocks. You'll have to manually modify nvidia's powermanagement kext to unlock higher clocks.

Find out how here: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=266036

edit: I've found a Cinebench 11.5 benchmark where your laptop scored 37fps on Win7 so I think it works ok 'cause Win7 scores are always 10-20% higher than on OSX.

@bbeepp,

So if Cinebench score looks ok at 31.39 and Geekbench is nearly the same as the latest MBP do I really need to modify my AGPM? I actually disabled it because it seems to become a problem at times causing the apple spin wheel of death. Lol.

I had a quick look over at the link you provided and the last person to post on the thread has the same card as mine but my Open GL scores are almost double his scores. So maybe I should keep my AGPM disabled?

Open CL scores are slightly lower on Oceanwave when compared to others, so maybe modifying the AGPM in this case would bring those scores higher or not? I think they pause it to get a higher score than mine.

I think you should try modyfing AGPM to conserve battery power and longevity of the gpu as it is continously working at full speed.
