    On the whole, my Xbench scores were unchanged from 10.5.1 to 10.5.2. The OpenGL benchmarks took a hit, while the CPU score went up. The other scores had negligible differences. Compared to Tiger, my scores with Leopard have been consistently higher in all tests except the thread test.

    Here are my Xbench scores for 10.4.10, 10.5.0, 10.5.1, and 10.5.2 (my scores for 10.5.1 and 10.5.2 reflect the scores after running the optimization routines in Xupport).

    Overall: 113.91 120.40 124.76 124.21

    CPU Test: 111.50 125.42 124.39 135.20
    Thread Test: 217.12 180.96 180.88 197.29
    Memory Test: 124.02 137.88 138.99 138.36
    Quartz Graphics Test: 141.15 171.07 173.21 174.44
    OpenGL Graphics Test: 193.92 210.66 221.00 194.67
    User Interface Test: 385.19 260.99 304.65 302.85
    Disk Test: 40.04 43.54 45.95 44.46

    Interesting, my results didn't vary much between .1 and .2, apart from the Floating Point library results which were a fair bit quicker in .2.

    Memory test crashed, and HDD test probably wasn't relevant.

    Floating point went from 111 to 150 while everything else pretty much stayed put. Anyone else confirm this change? Something that big I'm picking to just be a benchmarking glitch.
