Hi as most of you will already know Novabench is a program/app also available as an app from the mac app store. It is a popular component benchmark application for Windows, and Mac OS X. It's the most convenient way to test and compare your system's hardware and graphics capabilities! It test the following· Floating Point Test - Tests CPU's floating point arithmetic speed

· Integer Test - Tests CPU's integer arithmetic speed
· MD5 Hashing Speed - General CPU test
· 3D Graphics Test - Tests GPU with a heavily shader dependent 3D scene
· RAM Speed - Tests RAM read and write speed
· Disk Write Speed - Test write speed of primary or selected storage device

you can also compare your scores with windows systems....

I scored

943

on my

iMac (iMac12,2)
Intel Core i5 @ 2700 MHz
4 GB - DDR3 @ 1333 MHz
AMD Radeon HD 6770M

will be interesting to see your scores

Cool, but unless its free or folks already had it you may not get a lot of results.

2 1/2 second google search say's it's free........you would have looked in much less time than it took you to respond to his post....

What do you mean by 943? You mean all of the scores combined?

Oh, don't be a spoiled sport. ...everyone is not going to Google it to see if its free, so that could have been noted in the original post. ...but, technically, yes, you are correct. Is that better? :)  I'm tired, and, therefore, feeling lazy. Cut an old man some slack.

with such a constrained eco-system surely all scores will fall into buckets, apart from the hakintoshes.

I'm actually going to run the benches this evening or tomorrow AM...curious to see how my oldest MBP compares to my newer MBP and how that compares to my Mac Pro. ...just for the fun of it. If we could get some hackintosh scores too that's be really neat.

Mem, looks like your cpu is bottlenecking your video card considering my stock HD5850 scored over 504 in the graphics test.

Don't know what model you have but 3ghz should be VERY simple. I had the E6300 1.86ghz and I ran it at 3.45ghz.
November 4, 2011 8:20:00 PM

It looks like NovaBench for OSX can't doesn't bench SSDs...it didn't pick up the Vertex 2 RAID-0 in my Mac Pro or the Vertex 3 in my 15" MBP

I was kinda wondering why your graphics score wasn't higher. Slick
November 4, 2011 8:37:29 PM

How can a HD5870 possibly score 1158 when my HD5850 scores 504....? Somethings not right with that.

How can 2 GTX470 score only 624.....?

I think the benchmark is skewed, or screwed whichever you prefer.
November 4, 2011 8:45:13 PM

I personally think that the paid benchmarks are more accurate such as PC Mark or 3d Mark. Even adia is better at benchmarking.

Its a Q6600. I know its bottlenecking it especially in games that require a lot of cpu horse power and more on games that support only 1 or 2 cores. But, I play games on 1920x1080 and I think most of you know that on these resolutions cpu is not something that matters a lot. p.e. : In Dragon Age 2 I have the same frames like core i7 920 that was running with gtx570 for a site source: http://www.techspot.com/review/374-dragon-age-2-perform... .

This GPU benchmark has nothing to do with games. it runs like on 800x600 (judgin from the window that poped up for the test) that noone uses. But at these resolutions cpu matters a lot. thats probably why 2x gtx470 have such a low score. Gpu benchies that nowadays dont use the most popular resolution (1920x1080) are fail imo.

Here are mine, I ran it on two systems. I find the comparison quite interesting.

System 1. Dell L702x Laptop. Core i7 2630QM (Sandybridge) @ 2.0GHz. 8GB RAM. OCZ Vertex III 240GB. GT555m

System 2. Custom desktop. Core i7 920 (Nehalem) @ 3.8GHz. 6GB RAM. Crucial M4 120GB. GTX560Ti SLI

Ok after seeing jitpublishers scores, I know the test not accurate for sure.

FUD
November 4, 2011 11:57:20 PM

I think the Windows scores aren't balanced when compared to the OS X scores, especially graphics. That's got to be the discrepancy. Jit's 560Ti did more 3D FPS than my 5870 but got a lower score.
November 5, 2011 1:00:18 AM

That program IMHO is not much of a benchmark, and you all right, the scores make no sense, they are all over the place with no rhyme or reason.
November 5, 2011 11:05:33 AM

Whats the pint of having a number? The score makes no sense, real human usage is the right benchmark.

Okay, come now...you're making sense and we don't tolerate that too well. High numbers help deliver bragging rights and that's one of the main reasons why we enthusiasts have computers. ...just keep'n it real.
November 5, 2011 12:51:45 PM

End this dumb thread please!!

We all know 3dmark11 and 3dmark Vantage are much more realistic benchmarks.

I thought this was pretty good for a i7-2600K with a sabretooth z77 and a radeon hd6870. Had this one clocked at 5.0 ghz. Not bad for 1.45v either Oh and I know it says Intel HD3000 graphics but its because Im using Virtu MVP and it always seems to come up like that. https://novabench.com/view/352058
