Poor Geekbench score?

iMac 27" 3.2Ghz
675MX
1TB Fusion
32GB Ram

I've just ran geekbench and my score was 10769. I'm new to Macs and I've never used geekbench before so not sure I'm doing it right but from all the scores I've seen on the net, it seems low to me. Can anyone help me out with an explanation? I ran the 64 bit test.

Geekbench results

Is that the i5 or i7?

If it's the i5 then that might be about right, but I'm not an expert and waiting on my i7 to test it my self.

I understand when you test you should have no other programs running, just the Finder.

ETA - sorry just checked your score link. I think that might be right for the i5.

Just ran it on my 2005 G5 and got 1835

My new 27" iMac with i7 should be a little faster

You've run the Benchmark in 32bit Mode, what usually results in a lower score.

Thanks for posting this. After reading this thread I decided to run geekbench just for fun and noticed that my retina 2.7 was super slow. 2000 below average. I'm currently re-installing OSx since resetting ram and SMc didn't do anything...if its still 2000 below average that sloth is going back to apple first thing tomorrow morning.

On a side note my iMac 27 3.4 is on its way. Will be here Thursday

Nice setup. What kind of tasks do you use this machine for?

Remember you need to run the 64-bit version of Geekbench ($) in order to get 64-bit operation for best results.

GeekBench scores don't tell the full story..... I had a Mac Mini score in the 12000+ to only be beaten by my 2011 iMac in real world tasks......

Geekbench tests things which might not really be used in the actual applications you are using.
