    I guess it had the d300's in it? Although that's slightly under the score of a late model iMac i7, it smokes my mid 2011 iMac with i5! :D

    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.

    12849? My macbook pro gets that. Glad I held onto my Mac Pro 5,1. It gets a 16,800 with 8 core 2.93ghz now. Can't wait to drop in the 3.46ghz 12 core and watch it scream.

    it was a 32 bit score

    i'm happy, for a quad core it's pretty good. Can upgrade the cpu down the line to the 8 or 12. I'm getting off this site now and going to work with my new mac pro - so long sukas!

    Hope you enjoy it. Not sure why people have to be negative. I'm a bit jealous as I have a February delivery date to replace my 1,1.

    It's only one benchmark. But I'm sure most laptops, using mobile components, will blow this thing out of the water :rolleyes:

    I've only posted a couple of times, and in fact only registered a couple of days ago....but I've lurked and read for a LONG time....off and on for years. One thing that is persistent....the negativity of some people. Have fun playing with your nMP! I'm waiting until Feb to order mine...hopefully they will be all caught up by then, and I will use the extra time to decide exactly how to spend MY money....the money I earn with MY JOB, so everyone else who would like to tell me how to spend MY MONEY.....Go bite it! I have a wife for that:eek::D

    I'll try and get 64 bit later, busy with other things

    I guess that because you do not know the cycle of the Xeon and compare it with consumer CPU cycle instead.

    Don't forget geekbench score is just a short burst of the speed. But if you compare real life usage when you running the CPU for full speed for long period, that where we will see the thermal throttling taking effect. Consumer CPU will drop in performance which slow down the whole system

    Do you have the d300s? Have you done any work in fcpx with it yet?

    No threading?

    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?

    Nevermind. That chip supports HT http://ark.intel.com/products/75779/

    Thanks for the info, I am planning for the base model waiting on a Feb delivery date. I do wonder did ya test it on a 4k monitor? And did ya test final cut pro X?

    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?

    not my workflow for raw images, its all capture one. I use LR for jpeg editing. Just got set up, i ended up working till 6am. I did a gaussian blur on a 1 gig file in Photoshop. Took about 2 seconds but it dished it out

    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

    I doubt that would happen, but it will get incredibly noisy and eventually throttle the CPU. So similar geekbench scores is not equal to a similar actual computer experience. Any chance to run some GPU benchmarks I'm curious about the d300 vs d500 performance difference.

    That's amazing!

    Only about 1000 points less than my 4,1->5,1 with W3680 - and your machine was only twice as expensive as mine...
