    I was searching on the internet to see how the new 27" iMac scored on Cinebench R15. I found several scores and youtube videos on the new Mac Pro and older iMacs. Nothing on the one I am contemplating buying. Would anyone have the latest iMac 27in to run a Cinebench score on. I am looking for one that has these selections (CPU ands GPU score):

    3.5GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5

    I would appreciate knowing how this one did. I currently have a Mac Pro 2009 with a 4 core 2.93, ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB. This Mac scored:

    Open GL 59.39
    CPU 483 cb

    I am trying to decide on the iMac as listed above, or the new Mac Pro. I don't use my mac for work, I use it as a hobby for Final Cut Pro X (I don't care for iMovie). I care about creating the best short films I can, love to learn as I go. But I don't care to wait 2 hours to render 10 min of 1080p video as I do on my current machine. I am also a photographer using Lightroom and Photoshop, as I have a passion for photography as well. (60% of my computer time Video/Photography and remaining 40% I game in bootcamp).
    I already have the 30in Cinema display so I can go either way iMac or Mac Pro. I would like to keep my purchase around $5,500 or so.

    I'd really like to know how much of an improvement the iMac would have over my current older Mac Pro.

    Thanks zeropointzero for the scores, this will help.
    IA64, how did you get 152 fps? Do you have 2 GTX 780M cards ?

    He tested under Windows 8 with an overclock applied.

    Actually it's not an overclock, I'm just pushing the CPU to remain in Turboboost mode using modded power configurations.

    Here's also a thread how to tweak your SSD http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1699002

    One thing worth mentioning, Windows 8.1 performance is better than Mavericks in every aspect. Even running in TurboBoost won't give you that much of difference ( maybe 5-10 FPS but not twice as much )

    Under Mavericks the FPS is locked to 60. Also the Nvidia Drivers for Windows are much more mature with plenty of configuration tweaks.
