I want to see where my Mac Pro really stacks up against others. I ran the photoshop test, but are there any real Benchmarking programs for the Mac that I can run, preferably ones that other people here have run so I can compare?

Is there a thread buried somewhere with benchmarking results, that isn't the photoshop thread? How do we KNOW our machines are fast?

in the cubicles
they were the 'good old days'

before the net , before tech specs took over

when a second saved on a filemaker pro sort was a thing of infinite beauty

plus the graphs were awfully purdy

5108 on Geekbench from a restart, I didn't close any of my background apps like dashboard or chronosync.

That's right around all the other 2.66 Mac Pros on the site, although now I really see how much faster the 8 core is, wow.
