Yesterday I posted Xbench benchmarks of the Psystar Open Computer against the latest shipping Mac mini and all three Apple notebook computers and the Open Computer beat the Mac mini 147 to 99.

Some suggested Geekbench 2 benchmarks should also be run. If you’re not familiar with Geekbench 2, scores are calibrated against a baseline score of 1000, the score of a Power Mac G5 running at 1.6GHz. One thing to keep in mind is that Geekbench 2 only measures processor and memory performance, which is why, for example, MacBook and MacBook Pro scores are so similar, despite both having radically different GPUs.

Configurations are as follows:

  • Psystar Open Computer, 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 10.5.2
  • Mac mini, 2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 10.5.2

Geekbench Psystar 3244
Geekbench Mac mini 2936
Higher scores are better.

Again, the Psystar beat the Mac mini 3244 to 2936. You can can compare these results to all shipping Macs, and most shipping PCs on the Primate Lab blog.

Update: Geekbench 2 results from all three shipping MacBooks are after the jump...

Configurations are as follows:

  • MacBook Air 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 10.5.2
  • MacBook, 2.16GHz C2D, 2GB RAM, 10.5.2
  • MacBook Pro 2.4GHz (Penryn) C2D, 4GB RAM, 10.5.2

Geekbench MacBook Air 2200
Geekbench MacBook 3070
Geekbench MacBook Pro 3327
Click over to Primate Labs and download a free copy of Geekbench 2, then run on your Mac to see how it compares to other Macs. Don't forget to upload your results, a larger sample size gives everyone better data to look at.

Note: for the above tests I used the 64-bit version of Geekbench 2 (build 2.0.16) which are only available in the registered version (US$20).
