    What computer/specs do you have?
    Did you have a Vista and have a score for that?

    Flawless upgrade from Vista x64 on a MBP 15" (Unibody).

    My overall score in Vista x64 was a 5.3 (limiting factor was my HD).

    My scores at the moment:
    Processor: 5.9
    Memory: 5.5
    Graphics: 6.1
    Graphics (Gaming): 5.3
    Primary Hard Disk: 3.0
    I don't know why but my HD score bombed after the upgrade; I have not noticed any degradation in actual transfer speeds, however...

    Wow how'd you get a 5.4 for your primary disk score? I have a Macbook 2.0 Unibody as well and after a fresh Windows 7 beta install + Apple bootcamp drivers I get roughly the same scores as you except for the primary disk. My primary disk is only 2 and so my overall score is 2. Did you install something else to get that score other than the bootcamp drivers?

    Yeah, for some reason on my early 08 MBP it says my hard drive is 2.9 :confused: In Vista 64 it was like 5.4 or something.

    I can't figure out why mine is so low either. I'm getting a 2.0 for my disk score on a new Macbook 2.0 Aluminum Unibody.

    Yeah, I have a 2.4ghz MacBook (just bought a few weeks ago new) and I'm getting a 3.3 score on the primary hard disk rate. I wonder if there needs to be a driver update or something.

    are you all fully up to date with bootcamp 2.1?
  17. taskmaxter macrumors newbie

    Feb 4, 2007

    Hmm, that is a great question. How do you tell what version? Is it a simple update or something more invasive if I'm not running the latest version?

    Same hdd problems...

    Same problem here. Standard unibody MBP 2.53, my vista hdd score was 5.3, and now its 2.9. Latest boot camp drivers and was installed as an upgrade to vista ultimate x64. Maybe win7 doesn't like 5400rpm drives?

    Thank the lord it's not just me who was paranoid thinking my hdd was faulty or something. You can see from my signature I have a Late 2008 MBP and last night I installed Windows 7 64 bit beta via Boot Camp. It runs so fast which I'm happy with but after doing a performance benchmark I get a lousy primary hard disk (data transfer rate) score of 2.9 when the others are 5's and 6's. I am so interested to see what's causing this and I'm sure someone will have an answer soon or I hope they do. My inferior spec wise hp laptop gets more for the performance score test and my MBP is a powerhouse compared to it so I want it fixed as soon as.

    Got the exact same score (well for the HD) with Win7 x64. Suprised by this because I scored near a 5.0 when I ran the same test with Win7 x86. Really confused by this.

    System: Mid 08 MBP (Bought June/July)
    System Specs:Intel Core 3 Duo 2.4GHz; 4GB RAM; nVidia GeForce 8600M GT

    How big is your Windows 7 partition? If it's under 10GB of free space you'll loose points.

    I'm running with 32 gigs on my Windows 7 partition. Also, I'm running the x86 version of Win7 and my score on the disk rate is crummy.

    Had a feeling that had something to do with it. : sighs: Looks like I will be trying to add more space to the existing partition using gParted this week. Out of 21GB partition, only have 2.58GB left. I'll probably shift the partition to 32GB (like Boot Camp recommended to me in the first place. : crosses fingers: I hope I don't break anything.

    You better go higher then 32GB since I partitioned mine at that and I'm seeing a score of 3.3.
