    I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM via BootCamp on my Unibody Macbook.
    Specs:
    2.0 Core 2
    4GB DDR3
    The 64-bit kernel was used for both the 32 and the 64-bit SL tests
    The 64-bit version of Geekbench for Mac is a slightly older version (2.1.2 vs 2.1.4) not sure if that makes a difference

    See attached picture

    The Difference between Win7 x64 and SL x64 was very small. What I found interesting was the large difference between the 32-bit tests.

    I wonder how this transfers to real everyday tasks and scenarios.

    Eh

    To me it shows that as long as a program is coded to take full advantage of the OS, both operating systems are basically equal on a 64-bit system. However judging from the 32-bit tests, a 32-bit cross-platform program will be much much faster on the mac. However if the program is cross platform then one could technically buy a pc with 5x the specs for the same price (or less) to make up for that and it wouldn't matter. So to sum up, in the real world those tests mean nothing lol. Just found them interesting and posted them.
