Merom vs Opty... SOOOOO CLOSE!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
haha, I just got my macbook pro today and have of course spent the whole day getting everything running right, trasferring musics and full metal alchemist and what not. Finally at around 8pm i got around to getting bootcamp to work and after alot of work got finally got it up and running in xp, got all the drivers running and started up cpu-z to make sure everything was running right. Everything looked goos so I loaded up super pi, just out of curiosity. Low and behold it spits out a 1M time of 28.5 secs. This is a core 2 duo merom at 2.16 GHz so I wasnt expecting it to beat my desktop, but hey with my opty 165 at 2.91 GHz, the core 2 duo beat it by about 9/10 of a second. sigh, just makes me want to upgrade.

I think there's an OS X version of Super Pi. I bet you anything it smokes the windows time.
