Geekbench Scores

42 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I thought I would start a thread on this because I think it would be interesting for everyone to post their scores compared to their 10.5.8 system.

 

Here are my results

 

Specs

MB: ABIT IP35-E

CPU: Intel 2.66 Ghz Q9400

RAM: 4 Gigs 800 mhz

Graphics: Nvidia 9600GS

 

10.5.8 (32bit) score 4860

 

10.6 (32bit) score 5866

I believe this is so much higher because of the graphics card. It seems that snow leopard is really using the system resources much better than leopard did. Is any one else experiencing the same kind of performance increase?

 

This is a huge increase and you can really see the difference in my system. :)

(I am running 32bit because I need to read and write to an NTFS file system)

 

edit: I will post some screens when I finish running SuperDuper on my system.

with your hardware you should be able to go over my score easily.... i have an old q6600 with the same amount of ram and in 32bit I got 6412 check everything is working

Not sure everything seems to be working fine. The only par that I am scoring low on is memory.

 

Here is an image of my bench.

 

Now that I look at yours you are running 64 bit. I am on 32. I need to run it on 32 because I need to use NTFS-3G

Snow Leopard has been running great on my number 1 system. I'm running in 32 bit mode because the ethernet is the only thing I can't get to work at 64 bit. If I find a 64 bit kext for the ethernet, I'll repost these results.

A modest increase :P Unfortunately, I KP every time I boot into 64-bit mode...so I can't do that comparison...

Both the CPU and bus speed differ in these test. No wonder it is just a modest increase :D

LOL I have NO idea why these differ! Settings for both the CPU and RAM clockspeed were the same in BIOs when I ran Geekbench on each OS.

I think I have to tweak my SMBIOS.plists and tune up a few things in both OSes.

I've also been verrrrrrry sleep-deprived throughout the Snow installation process. (I finally got the Kitty to stop KPing a 2:00AM, two days ago :withstupid:)

How do you guys change the Model to show as Mac Pro instead of Hackintosh? I have Mac Pro defined in smbios.plist

Here is mine:

put smbios.plist in /Extra Folder. Take mine as an example and mod it to your system

smbios.plist.zip

Thanks Beto2k7. That worked. I had something bad in my prev. smbios.plist

 

By the way, now it displays as Mac Pro 2,1. What's the big difference between displaying Mac Pro 2,1 - 3,1 - 4,1?

 

I tried to change model from 2,1 to Mac Pro 4,1 but I got a KP.

 

 

Cheers!

Basically MacPro2,1 MacPro3,1 and MacPro4,1 refer to the hardware refreshes Apple has done to the MacPro line. And u can't just change the model because the information on the smbios.plist has to match the model you want to represent

 

I dont have the info from a real MacPro4,1 but here is for MacPro3,1 if u want

 

MacPro3,1

 <key>SMproductname</key> 
<string>MacPro3,1</string>	  
<key>SMfamily</key> 
<string>MacPro</string> 
<key>SMbiosversion</key> 
<string>MP31.88Z.00C1.B00.080209154</string> 
<key>SMbiosvendor</key> 
<string>Apple Inc.</string> 
<key>SMserial</key> 
<string>W88261E7YP4</string> 
<key>SMboardproduct</key> 
<string>Mac-F42C89C8</string> 
<key>SMsystemversion</key> 
<string>1.0</string>

 

Just replace those Strings and keys in smbios.plist.

That's because the latest Mac Pro's (identified by 4,1) are Core i7's and the OS tries to load AppleTYMCEDriver.kext. This kext is for Core i7's only and will panic on other CPU's. If you don't have a Core i7, just delete that kext and it will then boot fine without the kernel panic ;)

Thanks for explaining that M0rpheus. My current CPU is Q9550. Is there any advantage of using MacPro 4,1 identifier?

 

If I try the MacPro 3,1 smbios that Beto2k7 posted here, Sys. Profiler shows it as a MacPro, but GeekBench shows it as Hackintosh. With MacPro 2,1 is showing it fine on GeekBench.

 

So, for Q9550, what's the best MacPro identifier I can set on smbios?

 

Cheers!

I have a Q9550 myself as you can prolly see on my sig, I use the 4,1 fine with the deleted AppleTYMCEDriver.kext. I have no issues with that whatsoever so I guess I can recommend it :(

 

Either way it doesn't really matter at all. There won't be any performance difference.

Geekbench keeps crashing on my at startup in both 32-bit and 64-bit modes on 2 different machines. Anyone got any idea what's causing that? Otherwise SL is running perfectly.

 

First machine has EP45-UD3R mobo and the other EX58-UD3R.

 

Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

System in sig.. (64bit kernel, 32bit GB)

 

10.5: 5912

10.6: 6254 (800mhz - mine)

 

10.6: 6954 (1333mhz - rocccky's system)

 

Interesting to see how much of a difference ram makes.. Rocccky has exact same non-OC system w/ with faster ram.

Done with nothing else running - fairly happy with the scores overall.
