I have recently received my 2010 5,1 mac pro. My system specs are as follows: 12 Core 2.66 Ghz 6 GB Ram (standard that it came with) 1 TB HD (Standard too) ATI 5870 Video Card I ran geekbench with the following results: http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/286352 I think I have an appropriate score compared to other recently posted 2010 12 core systems... seems like the guys over at barefeets barely broke 23,000 with a 23,099 score - which I couldn't do on my system, but he has more ram (12gb I think). Is my score acceptable? Should I being doing something different to break 23k? I just made sure other apps were closed and ran 64 bit Geekbench, I didnt know any other tricks. Any thoughts appreciated.
