im still amazed about my macbook, (increased by the fact, that i upgraded from an old p4 northwood, 256 RAM) and i downloaded superpi for mac
you can download it form here:
http://ocing3.free.fr/FTP/overclocki.../exec_Mac_OSX/

and use 21 of parameter, which means 2^21 dgits

im calculating 2^21=2M digits of pi
here are my results:
no activity but super pi: 141.136 s
superpi+opera downloading at 106kB/s+grapher+itunes+.avi playing with vlc media player: 155.510 s
amazing, i have macbook white, 1.83GHz, 512 RAM and macOS tiger 10.4.6

I got 157.089, which seems pretty good on my G4 PB.

PS Instead of taking an entire screenshot you can use Command + Shift + 4 to just take a shot of a particular area.

62.238 sec using 21 parameter. mac pro 2.66ghz 2gb ram

72.420 sec using 21 param, mac mini merom core 2 duo 2.33ghz 2gb ram. So your mac pro has a 16% clockrate gain over me but only did 14% better at super pi... so perhaps the merom has some derivative technology of the xeons? hmmmm

umm the zeons are just re-classed core 2 duo's. They did add a few features to it. Just think about this you have 2 cores that are 12% slower than mine but i have 2 more cores at my disposal.

ah i thought the xeons always had unique architecture perks or special instructions or whatnot... i guess that makes sense because the meroms do 64 bit eh? wow so I basically have a xeon mini then huh? tight!

yes you have four cores and a nice warranty :) but my computer can fit in my tiny car :) :)

humm 119s this time, 20seconds less that my previous post, but how is that possible, almost same as G4's??


usaually core duo pc's, with more less same hardware running several versions or super pi do half time that me
well, this superpi was used to benchmark powerpc macs, i found it here:
http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=2400
around one year before the macbook was released, ill be looking for another superpi...

Yea i would expect the times to be much lower if you can find an intel version of it.

You can tell what core its running on by opening activity monitor and looking at the cpu usage.

super_pi for OS X is not universal

All you wankers running super_pi on your brand new core 2 duos, stop wasting your time unless you're only interested in testing emulated PPC performance via Rosetta.

The super_pi Mac OS X binaries available from super-computing.org are PPC only.

Duh?
