I do not believe this is accurate.As long as you can report a problem with Assistant, it means Yosemite keeps an eye on the whole system, which would reduce some performance. I think so, it is a PUBLIC beta.
OS X is always logging, no matter whether its beta or not.What do you mean by that? Something is running in the background and logging all data?
Yes it's a beta.So i made a quick comparison today on my rat lab iMac : ML vs YM (DP6) with Cinebench
the results are awesome as you can see!

if you have any other benchmark tools comaprison please post here.(with the same machine obviously)
No "it's a beta" comments are allowed!
I also noticed Memory Compression was turned off until PB2.The only difference is that a beta version will do a lot more logging and other forms which allow debugging. This won't be in the final release so that one should have a bit better performance.
@OP: try benching the machine with 10.9 since it comes with performance and graphics improvements. The difference should be smaller.
Yes, forgot to state that.in cinebebench?
This is true to a point, but benchmarking these OS's is a great way to gauge not only the current state of the OS, but potential driver optimizations (or lack thereof) that have taken place.In my opinion, it is a waste of time to focus on the benchmark of a Beta or DP release OS, especially when said benchmark is being compared to a finished OS.
Just make it work well on the machine you say you support . That's a much better strategy, just think how people would honor your machines, people would speak highly of them and call them the best investment ever. This won't stop people from upgrading, I don't understand why there is a need to subtly nudge and control its users like some illuminating cult.Planned obsolescence strategy at it's best !!
Don't confuse tests that are designed to test the hardware (Geekbench) with those that are designed to test the performance of the OS (XBench).I'll concur, I ran Geekbench, the free version, and performance is about the same.
