Default What is your score? - GEEKBENCH cpu test - 05-20-2009, 09:10 AM

In various threads, mostly about slowdowns, there were disscussions about the different geekbench scores.
I thought it might be helpfull to have a dedicated thread about geekbench scores.
This could be turned into a sticky.

Here you can get the simple program:
Primate Labs Geekbench

Get it for osx (or xp, linux)
Its free, easy to install and run.
I put it in the utilites folder, which sits also in the dock to have quick access.

Please post your results along with your system info (os x version, dellefi 1.1 or 1.2b, bios etc),
plus infos like:
how long is the mini running already when testing (just booted or running for x hours?)
What temperature does coolbook show when starting the test (will go up during the test).

Damn, on my slighty warmed up DM9 I get 909. Just 1 point lower than everyone else. What a loser I am ...

WAIT A MINUTE ... I did another test.

909 score, slightly warmed up mini, on AC, with BT mouse active
930 score, same avg temperature, on BATTERY, with BT mouse in-active

I saved the two sessions, so I'll look later at the individual benchtop results to see what was affected.

My setup (reported by geekkbench): DELLEFI 1.1, 10.5.7 (build 9j61), 2gb ram 533mhz, bios a05
- no apps running during test (other than bt disabled on test #2)

Dell Mini 9 (96Gb) | White | SL 10.6.5 + Win7 Pro using EasyBCD 2.0 | 2G GSkill 667 RAM | No Webcam | BIOS A05 | 32G Runcore SSD | 32G SDHC (ext) | 32G SDHC (int w/ MR04 Card) | 1505 802.11n | Internal BT | Chrome Apple Logo
Dell Vostro A90 (96Gb) | SL 10.6.5 | 2G HyperX | 0.3Webcam | BIOS A04 | 64G Runcore SSD | 32G SDHC (ext) | and other stock features

~892 consistent across runs.

I must have something running in the background that is absorbing some cpu cycles to be below 900, but it's been that speed for as long as I can remember testing.
