Colt what was your first score? Your present overall score shows 128.32, Most people running a 1.42Ghz with 512 seem to be around 116-120. Someone above said 118.11 I found this as another example...

Are you talking about a 20% from 256MB? I'm not doubting you, I just want to learn more. Very Happy

I didnt run a before. I didnt know about the program at the time.
The 20% is referred to as the increase from 1.25 ----> 1.5

Here is a 1.25 with 512 ram.... http://ladd.dyndns.org/xbench/merge.xhtml?doc1=101350

That's cool I thought you meant a 20% increase in performance. So you gained about 15 points with XBench. I wonder how much your gain will be with a 7200 drive a 1GB memory! Very Happy
