    Everyone's favorite cross-platform benchmarking program Geekbench has been updated to version 3. The tool is free to use in 32-bit mode, but if you want to unlock the 64-bit mode, the app will cost you $9.99 for OS X, or $14.99 for Windows, Linux and OS X versions.

    Thanks for notifying us Tony.
    Memory scores seem more accurate.
    I tried to tweak my memory numerous times with old version,but it seems it was performing at spec after all.
    I am running 10.8.3.
    Systems above 10.8.3 and/or running 64 bit show 10k+.
    I score 8.9+ with similar spec hardware.
    Intel 3350p 3.1, Gskill Ripjaw 1600, Giga H75md3h.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    For the first time, running GeekBench under OS X and Windows gives me very similar results.
    Usually windows systems wiped the floor with OS X on my builds.

    I like the new single core reporting feature also.

    According to the Geekbench forum, OSX 10.7 is the minimum supported version of OSX for Geekbench 3, though I was able to run it on my old Mac Mini running OSX 10.6.8

    GeekBench 3 was updated on Aug 17th to also run on OS X 10.6 systems. The current version as of this writing is 3.0.2

    Very helpful as some of us run systems on 10.6.8 too.
