Low Geekbench Score (Z87x-UD4h)

Recommended Posts

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 Score (64bit)

Single-core: 3630

Multi-core: 14724

Kexts

FakeSMC (with plugins, v.5.3.820)

HDAEnabler1

ACPISensors

CPUSensors

GPUSensors

LPCSensors

GenericUSBXHCI

AppleIntelE1000e

 

Boot:

Chameleon 2266

GUI=Yes

EthernetBuiltIn=Yes

GeneratePStates=Yes

GenerateCStates=Yes

 

Bios

Loaded "Optimized defaults", the applied settings as per acronator's post above.

 

 

Thanks!

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...

    • For me the forum seems reasonably OK, except whenever I see the word 'LOADING' - like when clicking another page of a thread - when it just stops completely and never returns.   I use an adblocker, so adverts aren't slowing me down.  Browsing the forum indexes is not too bad, as is clicking to view any thread.  Ditto clicking a link in an email notification to go to a particular post in a thread.  Sometimes it takes maybe five seconds to load a page, which is a bit too long.  But it's not terrible.   But then whenever I click on any other thread page, which tries to do the in-page content load (without a full page refresh), I see LOADING and then nothing further happens, even after minutes.   It's definitely not related to which content is loaded, but rather how it is loaded.  For example if I go to the index for this forum, then click directly to page 11 of this thread, it loads in 1-5 seconds.  But if I click the link to page 11 within the thread, it never comes back.  I just see this, forever:     This stuck issue seems to me likely something broken (code or configuration?) rather than a general slowdown.  But maybe there's also a general slowdown, especially for those who are seeing adverts.
    • This is as far as I can get with the AMD kexts and the device ID added. They load but the frame buffer isn't loaded. I've tried loading all 7 frame buffers included in the X1000 kext with no luck. From the tests Gigamaxx did there seems to be more luck spoofing as Intel graphics there. More support may come from integrated Vega though, hard to tell.    
    • as documented here it is a sample rate standard and i have also tested it and i can confirm that it works with my audigy rx at least, i have to test it with other cards   https://github.com/audiojs/sample-rate
    • Yes, if i use the EFI folder that I uploaded to the google drive then i do have Intel working properly with QE/CI.
