Can anyone provide this please I can't find it on Geekbench yet.
Ran it last night and got around 8500. I'll try and do it later today to get the exact value. I have the 2.8 quad, stock 3GB RAM (for now), and the 5870. Hope that helps.
Can you give an idea of the noise level, especially with that video card. That's the same set up I'm looking for, just concerned about how loud the machine is, especially when idling.
8500 in 32bit is pretty impressive. I was expecting high 7000s. I'm guessing in 64bit it would go low 9000s. Mine is stuck at the local FedEx depot -- in fact tracking says it's on the van for delivery... for Monday! What a tease.
8200 is impressive? Guess i'm glad that I got the hexacore with a score of 15000 . . .
Doesn't seem that high to me, my 2.66 i7 Macbook Pro gets over 5300 in 32bit and that's only a dual core.
How about reading my comment in context? Impressive for that processor not in general. The 15000 score on your hex looks weak next to a 2.93 12 core don't ya know.
Odd trying to compare a laptop w/ a workstation, but it's a higher score by over 50%. And we are talking about machines that are months apart. My 2006 2.66 QC got around 5300 too, so that tells you something about the mobile i7 used in the MBPs. It's also why I opted to save some $ and get an i5.
Sorry laptop is all I have for the moment as my Mac Pro hasn't arrived yet and trying to live vicariously through you guys! But it is an interesting question if Ghz per Ghz if the i7 mobile parts are as fast as the server parts. I was surprised to find my 2.66 mobile part has a turbo speed of 3.33!
Off topic alert:
My 2.66 C2D (2009) clocks in at slightly over 3700 so that i7 core does help quite a bit.
Ok I get 8850 on my 2.8 quad. As for noise, the machine is about 3 feet away from me and I hear nothing...maybe a slight fan hum and occasionally the HDD. I haven't stressed the graphics card too much so I can't comment on its fan. Played a game for a little while last night and didn't notice anything excessive, but I wasn't paying attention.
Compared to this 2009 Octo
I know and I wonder how representative it is of my daily tasks
To put it in perspective, the Core i7 2.93 gets over 10,000. It's a quad too, but it has much more aggressive turbo mode.
I guess I'm confused on what context you meant that I didn't understand. I was only stating that for an extra $1k it theoretically will give you double the performance. Seems like a smart move to me, just glad I did it is all . . . Of course a 12 core would be that much higher, I'm just surprised to see how low the 2.8 Quad really scored . . .
8850 is not bad, considering an 8 core from 2008 (X5472) score a 9198. In other words, the 2.8 2010 4 core is almost as fast as a 3.0 2008 8 core built just two years earlier, on a program that is multi-threaded. I would imagine that the 2010 2.8 Mac Pro would be considerably faster on single threaded applications, given that result.
This my 09 Model, without a restart.
I'm very curious to see the benchmarks on the 12 core models.
Actually that's not too surprising.
The 2008 8 core doesn't have hyperthreading while the 2009-10's do, so the new quads function more like an eight core machine for many applications.
Doesn't seem that impressive, maybe that's because I have a $1300 machine that does better on this benchmark.
I got 11548 on my 2007 Mac Pro Dual Quad-Core 3 GHz
At the Geekbench site I just saw a 12-core doing 30889
That's a hackintosh.
Here's my "old" 2007 Mac Pro, I think it does well compared to the 12-cores.
I suppose that depends on your definition of "does well"..
Just browse the geekbench results (search for "MacPro5,1"):
Here are Geekbench and Cinebench scores for five models of 2010 Mac Pro along with 2009 and 2010:
And here are some results for Photoshop, After Effects, and much more:
