    i'm very surprised, it's up there with the 2009 2.66 quad.

    You did better than me.

    MacPro 1,1 Quad Xeon @ 2.66GHz = 5459

    MacBook 4,1 Core 2 Duo @ 2.4Ghz = 3361

    It could be that they paid for it and was able to run a 64-bit test which might speed things up. Just a guess.

    Running the 32 or 64-bit app of Geekbench2 makes a big difference.

    Memory size and bandwidth is another important point. The high scores come with at least 24 GB of memory fitted. Squeezing bandwidth out of the memory arrangement by fitting the sticks appropriately to the six channels impacts as well.

    yeah I figured as much. I just saw some machines that matched mine that were running about 2k higher. I guess I can assume that they were using the 64bit version eh?

    Thanks
