i just installed leopard and everything looked perfect until i ran Xbench and Geekbench tests. The results were downright disappointing:



Geekbench: 1119


anyone please shed some light on these low results? is it my mac or leopard?

Hmm, that's strange


I have a 15" MBP 2.2GHZ 2GBRAM and got 106.67 on Xbench. What kind of installation method did you use? I did an archive/install and noticed Leopard was just way too sluggish. So I did a clean install and my MBP was performing a lot better. I'm not saying it's great right now cause I'm still experiencing some crappy performance issues here and there. Too bad I didn't get a chance to run Xbench beforehand.


Anyway good luck with your MBP man!

Bearing in mind I have changed my hard drive as my old one died 3 days after I installed Leo (legally):

xbench is incredibly useless as a benchmark and quite possibly the dumbest thing to ever be released. about the only good thing it provides is the hard disk benchmarks, the cpu/graphics are worthless.


if you're interested in your systems actual performance (cpu/mem/etc) use geekbench, if you you want to measure your 2d/3d performance, get a game of some sort and get the FPS.
