Bench mark scores are different in Sierra and HighSierra

I'm sorry if any of the below information is incomplete.

 

I've two SSD one is macOS Sierra and the other is HighSierra.

And the Geekbench and Cinebench scores are different under same settings, same hardware.


Here is my complete hardware:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X99-Designare EX (rev. 1.0)
CPU: Core i7-6900K
RAM: 64GB
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB)
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB)
System Disk: HyperX Savage 480GB SSD SATA

Graphics: GIGABYTE GTX650 2GB 128Bit GDDR5 
Wifi + Bluetooth: No additional wifi/Bluetooth card, Bluetooth is working but wifi is not (Can fix this? I tried this driver and didn't work: https://github.com/ammulder/AppleIntelWiFiMVM)
Power Supply: Corsair VS650 Power Supply
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master: Hyper T4
Monitor: 22 Inch Benq monitor


Here are the scores:

macOS Sierra:
Geekbench: single - 4857, multi - 32460
Cinebench: 1643

 

macOS HighSierra:
Geekbench: single - 4487, multi - 24357
Cinebench: 1399

 

Is this difference is caused by Overclocking issues? if so why Sierra is performing well under same settings.

I think it is the problem with EFI or config file I'm using. someone, please help me with this.


Here is the download link for the EFI folders: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gk5v269elbywk2m/AAAJONG6jmw-GyPL1PvQFfWra?dl=0

Don't waste your time trying to get an Intel wireless card to work, it won't. There's no support whatsoever for Intel cards under OS X/macOS. Very obviously, there was no hope to be had by trying to use the abandonned stuff you linked to which clearly indicates it's not reached anything beyond trying to initialise those cards; so ...

 

-> Use a supported card or a USB adapter instead, knowing that you may of course use a laptop's card in a Mini PCIe/M.2 to PCIe (x1) adapter as illustrated on the blog related to the above dead project.

Thanks. I will buy a new wifi/bt card.

 

Do you know why the benchmark scores are different?

You're not using the same configuration between the 2 x installations, that'll explain the difference in results...

 

Open up your config files with Clover Configurator, you'll see the differences immediately:

  • ACPI settings (including CPU power management)
  • CPU settings
  • SMBIOS settings
  • etc.

Thank you, I've tried to toggle the settings and it stopped booting.

 

This might be an annoying help, could you please help me with config.plist file?

I copied every setting from Sierra config.plist file and it boots fine. But the geekbench multiscore is very low.

But Cinebench score has some improvements 1520 now, before 1399

 

Scores now:

 

Sierra: 4838/32003

 

High Sierra: 4365/16796

 

Here are the links for the scores:

HS: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/11647571

 

Sierra: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/11647663

 

Also, I'm attaching the config.plist file.

 

Link for the original EFI folders: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gk5v269elbywk2m/AAAJONG6jmw-GyPL1PvQFfWra?dl=0

 

Thanks
