Phoronix: Mac OS X 10.6 Brings Serious Performance Gains
While our focus at Phoronix is on testing hardware under Linux, we remain friendly and interested in other BSD and UNIX operating systems too, including Mac OS X . With the launch of Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" we have been particularly interested in it considering the technological advancements that have been made in this update thanks to their large focus on improving the performance of Mac OS X. With that said, we have spent all week working on a grand Mac OS X benchmarking showdown by comparing the performance of the retail build of Mac OS X 10.6.0 to the earlier Mac OS X 10.5.8 through a number of different quantitative tests. We firmly believe that as of right now these are the most detailed desktop performance numbers available concerning Snow Leopard, but we already have more figures on the way. We have performance numbers from not just one Mac computer, but two different setups. Here's to the first 60+ tests we ran!
"FYI the OGL regessions are a "Doh" flub (grrr damn nda's). 10.6.1 should fix it. "
LOL..... NDA?... LOL
realy there is no need to explain and 10.6.1 will have other regessions with or witout the OGL fix.
the regession is simpel OpenGL3.1 do not work on the same time on the same VGA with OpenCL!
Wow! You really are a complete DUMB ASS that knows NOTHING about openCL. Really you have NO CLUE. Not one test utilized openCL. If there is no openCL code to be ran then there is NO loss of openGL rendering due to the shaders being used for openCL. Please Qaridarium, try to keep your comments on subjects that you might actually have a clue about. Clearly GPU computing is not one of them. Applications don't "automagically" use openCL.
