Yes, there are a few video apps that use the memory really quickly.
Well, I tried setting it to Macpro 3,3 and 5,1 and other settings, but can't get more than 13,000 on geekbench when the win7 version gets 40,000.
Wonder what other tweaks there are to try.
lightninhopkins said:I'm running 64bit tests for sure. Even had a really proficient programmer make new kernels, and change tons of settings, but 13K was the max no matter what.
lightninhopkins said:Another good result with Cinebench CPU test, 24.5 points in win7, and 8 points in the mac version (same similar results, so we know it's not the geekbench app.

lightninhopkins said:@Tutor - thanks for all the information and directions. I can try this stuff later on today or tomorrow. I'll see how much of it I'm able to accomplish.
And regarding the BIOS, there are limited options for anything CPU related. Even speedstep isn't listed in there. I'll do what I can do.
