ok, i am pretty sure i narrowed this down to my firmware update. i have a core duo 1.66 that got 73 on xbench, after firmware update i can't get over 60. Can anyone else confirm a performance hit from the firmware update?

If anything, the firmware update increased my XBench from 53 to 55 recently (but I think that's more of a coincident).
