Question XBench scores

Just wondering what people have gotten with XBench on various setups. On the comp in my sig I got a 174.88. What I'd really like to know is how the SSD could improve these scores, but im curious about the i7 and the higher clocked i5 as well but post any comp you have tested. Just post your setup and show off those scores!

EDIT: Upon performing the test again my comp scored a 179.45.

Here's mine, which is weirdly lower than yours...so that kinda has me worried.

The OpenGL test is where it really bothers me, where my score is half yours, but my 330M has twice the RAM. And my disk is slower...which it shouldn't be since the data is more dense on mine since it is 500GB vs 320GB.

EDIT: Reran the test and got 176.something. So I don't what to believe. One thing is accurate though, my processor is, by our scores, 13% faster (195/222.85).

Yeah that is interesting. I wonder what causes the discrepancies when running the tests multiple times. Also, make sure you have the nvidia card enabled and not the intel. I did that the first time and got like a 125 >.<

Yeah I made sure the nVidia card was on, and still got the same score around 176.

Do you mind posting a screen? I want to see the SSD scores compared to the regular HDD.

I'mAMac, can you download Geekbench and run that as well? I wanna see if the difference is apparent in that test too...

Geekbench scores

I can run the test again if you want all of the other results as well but this should be ok for now.

Here's Xbench with my Early 2008 MacBook Pro (6GB RAM with OWC SSD). I was 8 other programs, however if I remember I'll xbench it after a restart.

Yeah the SSD makes a huge diff. MY disk test was in the low 50s and yours was 183. Might have to upgrade to one of those when they get a little cheaper. What was processor speed?

I've all but stopped using XBench because it seems unreliable to me (and there's no 64-bit version that I know of.)

When I do run it, I always run it at least 5 times and take an average of the 5. Depending on how "off" the first number is, I sometimes throw that one out altogether. Why is the first result always low? Beats me!

I've started using GeekBench myself.

Hmm. I got 5700 for mine, so at least that kinda makes me feel better. Although Geekbench doesn't do anything to test the graphics, which is what is really concerning me.

I actually have an older late-2008 uMBP. Core2Duo 2.53ghz 4GB RAM and a new Intel SSD .

The scores with new new SSD are really impressive. Even with my older chipset the HDD was definitely the bottleneck. As SSD would make your computer scream.

xBench is a bad benchmarking tool. It is usually faster with every run because the data ends up being cached so it gets accessed faster the next time.

GeekBench is a pretty good tool, but I have seen different results between different operating systems on the same hardware.

Hey TZ,and others, I'd like to see your results again now that you have 10.6.4 installed.
Attached are my xBench results from 10.6.1 to 10.6.4 I wish I had 10.6.3 but I don't, anyway, checkout the highlighted OpenGL results.

As Valve said, and as people have found, clearly there seems to be problem (problems?) with 10.6.4 in terms of graphics performance but I wonder if there are bugs hampering performance issues where in fact the baseline performance numbers maybe increasing as evidenced by my benchmark results.

Side note: Since 10.6.1 I have updated my hard drive from a stock 320gb to a 1tb Caviar Black which does impact the overall results and the topic of this thread seems to be the hard disc drive.

Xbenched my MACBOOK PRO's *Results*

I am curious if any of you have done this and if so what were your results. BTW, couldn't be happier with my Mac's.


My machine's:

1st - i7 2.66, OWC VERTEX2 SSD and 8GB of Ram.

2nd - C2D 3.06, 500 7200 RPM HDD, 4GB of Ram.

You do know XBench hasn't been updated since 2006 and it's results aren't very accurate anymore.

I didn't know that, thank you for sharing, are there any better or more current programs out there?
