    Hi everyone,

    I know xbench isn't a great comparison tool, but its still fun.

    Ever since my iMac Core Duo 17-inch arrived, I've only scored about 57 or 58, and that is using the current universal binary xbench.

    Today I saw that most people are getting in the 80s with this machine and even the Mac Mini Intel is getting in the 60s.

    I noticed that what is really bringing back my score is the user interface test. For some reason, my iMac is scoring only about 12 on that test, while the other machines are scoring 100+. Any ideas what would cause this and how I could fix it?

    Thank you for your time.

    Found out you need to Disable Beam Synchronization, in order for xbench to run properly.
