Bump to keep it near the other thread.

Did anyone noticed here that a C2D overclocked to 2,xx ghz scored the same % as a 2,66 Mac Pro with Live6??

So 4 cores on a MacOs are the same as 2 on WinXP? :?

The C2D was clocked to 3.28GHz, not 2,xx. 4 cores on MacOS are the same as 4 cores on WinXP. I'm not sure you'll see a difference between a 3.28GHz 2 core system and 2.66GHz 4 core system until you run a more CPU intensive test. Then the power of the extra 2 cores will make a difference.

AdamJay - maybe when you have some time, you can put together a more CPU intensive test to stress these new machines a bit more! :D

I think at least the gesture has kept the test results cleaner. I bumped it just to keep the two threads close to each other, and keep it on peoples' minds.

If someone wants to be uber cool and dorky, an updated chart of performance with Live 6 would be KILLER, many people would love that.

so does this solve the macbook vs. pro debate?
MacBook Pro T7600 / OS X 10.5.7 / Ableton Suite 8.0.2 / Peak Pro XT 6.1.1 / ReMOTE 37SL

bump- with a few Qs

1. So what performs better, Imac or macbook pro?
2. Does XP really run Live more efficiently than OSX on a mac?
3. custom build desktop PC-smartest move to make right now?
no prevailing genre of music:

to discuss the test - see this thread:
http://www.ableton.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=334690
otherwise this thread, as a resource to check specs gets loaded with pages and pages of mac vs. pc or people talking computers on and on, know what I mean?

Thanks.
...or loaded with people telling other people to post on the discussion thread ;)

One very useless idea (because of massive thread length) would be to link this thread on the other one, which AdamJay could do by editing his initial post

genius!!! ;)

I was looking for something towards the top I guess. pwned it is, then

But from the continued non-result posting, you could say that my classification as 'useless' is still valid. hehe

The majority of mac results were of single core powerbooks @ 1.5ghz, or new macbook/pro (intel macs) running on Live 5, which does not take advantage of multi-core processors. Check out my result of 19% after i upgraded to live 6, and enabled multiprocessing. In 5.2, i reported 37%, which means a 50% difference in performance.
