Fasten your stbelts, Mac Pro CPU 30,000 in updated Geekbench tests

There was much disappointmentback in Junewhen thenew Mac Pro‘s CPU – the12-core XeonE5-2697 – delivered a surprisingly low Geekbench score of 23,901. It had been widely expected to brk 30,000.Some cautioned then that the score, based on a 32-bit build of Geekbench running on an rly pre-relse version of the CPU with a beta version of Mavericks, might not tell the whole story, and new tests byTom’s Hardwareon V2 of the chip appr to confirm this …Curious as to how the very same 12-core Xeon E5-2687 V2 compared in , I ran my own test on a 64-bit build of Geekbench and scored in excess of 30,000 points—more than 25% faster than the .While this is still some way short of ’s claimed ’2x faster’, the claimed performance boost did show up in specific ars, like 3D moing and optical character recognition.[3D moing] is the grtest victory yet for ’s upcoming Xeon E5-2697 V2. It flies past the eight-core Xeon E5-2687W, finishing our Blender workload in less than half the time of a Core i7-4770K. It’s looking like 3D modelers are going to seriously benefit from the potential that Ivy Bridge-EP offers to ’s Mac Pro, even in a single-socket configuration [...]
Fully-thrded optical character recognition software FineRder fully utilizes the Xeon E5-2697 V2, finishing our benchmark workload in close to half the time of a Core i7-4770K. It’s even able to shave off 20% of the time from ’s 150 W eight-core Xeon E5-2687W. Impressive, indeed.Mac Pro owners had for a long time expressed concern that had lost interest in its high-end desktop machine, with no significant updates for some time. The unveiling of the new model atWWDCin June was welcomed, though there was some criticism that had prioritised form over function by requiring storage expansion to be external rather than internal.Check out thefull reportfor chapter-and-verse.
