    Does anyone know what the "User Interface Test" actually tests?

    Resurrecting an old thread, but I have a question as well.

    Higher, for all categories, is better.

    What's wrong with it? Sure, the overall score doesn't have much to do with how fast you perceive a computer to be, but it's otherwise good for comparisons. Some of the tests are somewhat pointless but can be used to directly compare 2 computers.

    It tests the number of UI refreshes it can do in that little window that pops up.

    My question: why is the OpenGL score for the newest MacBooks so low? My original Core Duo MacBook gets a score of 188, or about 7.5 times higher. Xbench uses a linear scale, so my GPU is able to spin those squares around 7.5 times faster than the X3100. Any explanation for this? Has this been fixed with 10.5.3 or 10.5.4? I ask because I may upgrade.

    Heck, the score is so low I bet a higher score could be obtained by turning _off_ hardware rendering. If anyone wants to try, use Quartz Debug (comes with Developer Tools) to turn off Quartz Extreme, then rerun just the OpenGL test in Xbench and tell us what kind of scores you got.
