  1. Geekbench only detects 1 core and 1 thread

    What version of Geekbench are you using?
  2. Leopard not running in 64-bit?

    Geekbench 2 is only available as a 32-bit application on Mac OS X because it uses some APIs that aren't available to 64-bit applications under Tiger. Once Leopard is released there will be a 64-bit version for Mac OS X (although like other platforms the 64-bit version will only be available to registered users).
  3. Geekbench 2.0

    Geekbench 2.0.2 is out; it should fix the issues people are seeing on AMD-based systems.
  4. Geekbench 2.0

    Thanks for the offer, but I don't think it's necessary. There's a known problem with Geekbench 2.0.1 on AMD-based Hackintoshes which I'll hopefully be able to fix for Geekbench 2.0.2 (which I'm hoping to release sometime over the next couple of weeks). I'll keep you guys posted.
  5. Geekbench 2.0

    There is a 64-bit version in the works, and it'll be made available around the time Leopard is released (it'll be Leopard-only, too, given the 64-bit limitations present in Tiger).
  6. Geekbench 2.0

    I really think that as the developer behind Geekbench, I should be the one that gets the system. Speaking of scores, you can view my Geekbench scores here.
  7. Geekbench 2.0

    Hi folks, I'm John, the developer behind Geekbench. I thought I'd let y'all know that there's a new version of Geekbench available. I think Geekbench 2.0 is a huge improvement over Geekbench 2006, and I hope you'll think so, too. You can download both the Mac OS X and Windows versions of Geekbench 2.0 from the Geekbench website. If you've got any questions, please let me know.
  8. Geekbench 2.0 Beta

    Hi folks, I'm John, the developer behind Geekbench. Since there are a lot of people here that use Geekbench I thought I'd let everyone know that I'm setting up a private beta for the next version of Geekbench. If you're interested you can sign up here. If you've got any questions, please let me know.
  9. Performance Comparison of Most Current CPUs

    I mentioned this over at Geek Patrol, but I think it bears repeating here.
  10. I propose this to be the new standard benchmark

    I've got a similar configuration under Windows (with an Intel DQ965GF motherboard and 1GB OCZ DDR2-667 4-4-4-12) and I get a score of 220.2 in 32-bit mode and a score of 253.2 in 64-bit mode. I'm amused the 32-bit scores are so close!
  11. I propose this to be the new standard benchmark

    I'm the developer behind Geekbench, and I'm glad you guys find it useful! I must say it's been interesting seeing the results from both Hackintoshes and Macintoshes. Anyway, here are my Geekbench scores for my iMac Core 2 Duo: Mac OS X 32-bit: 206.7 Mac OS X 64-bit: 220.7
