Hi guys,

 

I've built and got running my latest build on 10.8.5 - all is well. It's snappy, seems to good give performance in games, and whilst rendering. However when I was researching what parts to buy, I came across a lot of Geekbench scores (for 10.8.5) that are a lot higher than mine. Whilst it's not the end of the world that I have a "low" geekbench score and this build knocks the socks off my old 10.6 setup, I'm just a little disappointed!

 

I'll put as much info below as I can - does anyone have any ideas as to why my score is seemingly a lot lower than other similar/identical setups? I've seen reports of scores in the 17k range for no-overclock builds using same motherboard, cpu, and OS version...

 

For the build, I followed acronator's guide here.

Geekbench 3 results are quite different (and usually lower) than previous versions.

 

All the best!

Ooh, that's interesting. I'd not even considered the Geekbench version... I'll see if I can get my hands on v2 and give it a shot. 

 

That said, it's only numbers... right? ;)

 

I'm currently playing around with making a custom SMBios to match a MacbookAir6,2 since that has Haswell and is fairly recent. Will just try different SMBios configs and see if they make any difference.

 

Cheers.


Managed to get my hands on Geekbench 2.2.7. Ran it against v3 (both 32 bit this time) and got these results:

v2.2.7: 13981

v3: 13355

 

So v3 is slightly lower, but still far from what others are reporting. Time to try SMBios fiddling...

Various SMBios presets only gave me variations in the hundreds of points. Tried iMac13,2; MacPro3,1; MacbookPro10,1.

 

Might try making a DSDT...

You problem is lack of proper CPU power management. You should make a SSDT using Pike R, Alpha's script (Google is your friend).
