New iMac Benchmarks: Santa Rosa Chipset Speed Tests. 24″models

primate labs results24 inch iMac Performance via Primate Labs!

August 9th, 2007 Steve Jobs announced new iMacs on Tuesday and while I’m not sure Iimac speed test like the new enclosure, I do like the other improvements that come with the new iMacs like faster processors, more hard drive space, and the Santa Rosa chipset.

I thought I’d compare the performance of the latest 24-inch iMac against the previous generation of 24-inch iMacs using Geekbench 2. While I don’t have any results for the 24-inch iMac with the Core 2 Extreme processor right now, I’ll update this article once I receive results for the Core 2 Extreme processor.

Setup

  • iMac (24-inch Mid 2007)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.40GHz
    • 2.00 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    • Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Build 8R4031)
  • iMac (24-inch)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.33GHz
    • 2.00 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    • Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Build 8R2218)
  • iMac (24-inch)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.16GHz
    • 2.00 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    • Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Build 8R2218)

Primate Labs is reporting the baseline score, rather than the raw score, for each benchmark (where a score of 1000 is the score a Power Mac G5 1.6GHz would receive). Higher is better.
