I just upgraded my 2012 Mac Pro to dual x5690's from the stock E5645's. I've been watching YouTube videos documenting the results and everything I've seen shows results around 25,000 (give or take) on the multi-core score. Here's my 'before' Geekbench score: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/11006212 and here's the 'after': https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/11557092 I'm only seeing an improvement of between 500-600 points on both the single and multi core scores. I didn't get a Cinebench score before I upgraded but the post-upgrade score comes out to 1513 - 1612 across half a dozen tests. I'm running the latest version of GeekBench with Mojave 10.14.2 (both pre and post upgrade) so my last-luster performance improvement is both disappointing and not making a whole lot of sense. I realize synthetic benchmarks aren't the best representation of real-world performance so I'm doing some other CPU-intensive tasks to see if I can "feel" a marked improvement. Can anyone offer some insight to why my performance hardly improved?
