    Can someone run the OpenGL on Cinebench R11 for me and tell me what they get?

    I've read the summer 2011 Core i5/i7 MacBook Airs should get around 10 fps, but for some reason I'm seeing only about 3.5 fps. Doesn't seem right, though nothing else is running, the machine has been rebooted, etc.

    The Intel 3000HD is slow, but I don't think it's supposed to be that slow.


    Never mind -

    Figured out the issue.

    For anyone interested, the Air Display driver (to allow an iOS device to act as a second display) causes the major slowdown.

    Uninstalled the driver and the Cinebench R11 (R11.5, actually) went back up to 10.99 fps.

    Before reading your update, I got 10.69 fps from my 11" i7 on Cinebench R11.5. The CPU scored 2.32 points vs. AnandTech's 2.36 on an identical system. On the single-core benchmark, I got 1.10 to AnandTech's 1.11. How does that compare to yours? Have you installed the 10.7.1 update yet (I have)?
