Sorry to say, but score is pathetic.
Any particular reason you used 32-bit test? Do you want it to look more DRAMATIC?
Cough, Cough ... $400(buy) - $350(sell) = $50 upgrade from 2 year old Sandy Bridge system.
BTW, D300 has no effect on GB test scores (video is excluded from the tests: no GL, no OpenCL.)
Could not wait for new mini - once released, will sell hack piece by piece to pay for new mini and call it a day.
I'll try and get 64 bit later, busy with other things
These numbers are in line with my 2012 27" iMac Quad core i7 3.4Ghz. And I ran the benchmark with my usual complement of 10 applications running in the background. What gives? Is hyper threading disabled on the MacPro?
no Fcp yet. Capture One tetherd shooting nikon d800. Usb3 is incredibly fast - even at 36 megapixel raw, and the previews generate very quickly. I have tried this with several computers and the setup finally works the way i want it too.
Any idea of a Lightroom benchmark that could be run with those D800 files?
To put it in the most simple term;
Geekbench is just like a 100m sprint run which does not really show the real world usage of 48km marathon.
Unless your usage of every application could be don't in every sprint then Geekbench will be good indicator for you. Which I don't think so.
Else we should be more interested in the 48km marathon instead.
it's true. My MBP and MP got similar scores, but run some really heavy stuff and the MBP would get hot and melt
