2011 MBA Post xbench results here.

Please download xbench from http://www.xbench.com/ and post your results here.
Hard to keep track of all the results in all the other threads.

You do know that XBench hasn't been updated in over five years. Its results are pretty inaccurate. A better solution is to use GeekBench.

None of the Mac benchmarks apps are very useful. The best way to bench a mac is with the applications they're used for.

I was most interested in an app that would allow us to get a somewhat accurate idea of how the samsung stacks up against the toshiba in 64gb 128gb and 256gb sizes. I even read in another thread that while the 128gb samsung is faster than the 128gb toshiba the opposit is true when comparing the speeds of the 256gb versions. I am hoping to clear this up somehow.
I wonder if aja system test is a better alternative?

It's pretty accurate.

Hard drive results are the only thing Xbench is still accurate with.

I know little about hard disk benchmarks, but the Samsung looks like it is quite a bit faster than the Toshiba. What does this translate into in the real world? Will I notice it when copying files? Starting up programs?

More importantly, could things be improved with a firmware update in the Toshiba or something like that?

Each reading varies by about ~10mbps lower as the tests run though, thats the fastest it will achieve, with nothing else running at all, I'm happy

thanks! that was fast

so generally said the samsung is about 25-30% faster in synthetic benchmarks, at least the 256gb version.....interesting....I don't think that there is much of a difference in everyday usage though....

Had no idea about this app, cheers!

Xbench is rather inaccurate for my OWC drive.

Yeah I just found it the other day, but I can't say how accurate it really is. I crosschecked it with AJA and XBench and it seems to get similar results...
