    Does the SSD have any effect on the Geekbench mark?
    I originally had 5928 on my MBP with my standard HDD (stock) and with the new SSD, I have 5792.

    From the Geekbench web site:

    "Geekbench provides a comprehensive set of benchmarks engineered to quickly and accurately measure processor and memory performance."

    run it in a week or so. your OS is probably adjusting to the new drive. caching and indexing can slow down your processor a bit. that is probably it.

    or some background process did utilize some of the CPU power this time around.
