Why are benchmarks not all the same? I can understand that there can be some variances (eg. different apps installed/running, OS, etc). But how can the same machine undergo a benchmark test within minutes and get different results every time. Example: MacBook Air 2013 i7 8GB = Geekbench 6594 32bit http://www.tonymacx86.com/attachments/macbook-air/58619d1370976073-2013-haswell-macbook-air-geekbench-results-screen-shot-2013-06-11-2.38.43-pm.png MacBook Air 2013 i7 (assumed 8GB because of score) = Geekbench 7489 32bit http://photos.macnn.com/news/1306/mba-geek-lg.jpg What's odd is that an iOS device's results are almost always consistent!!
