New better graphic card lower RAM and CPU results

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a brand new SSD (crucial MX300) in a fresh installation of my hackintosh with Sierra 10.12.4 on a rock solid overclocked i5:

i5-760 (first generation) 2.8 @ 4ghz 20x200 and Memory running at 1600 Mhz, almost working but the graphics, with the following results:

 Intel Core i5 running at 4GHz

 Asus GeForce GT 610

Reinstalled with brand new GTX 750 ti, Nvidia Wed drivers installed and updated in config.plist use clover, now graphic acceleration works, but my CPU and RAM performs half some hours ago:

Which can be the reason to perform so bad?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

The CPU score were consistent, I ran multiple test. I found the problem with my configuration, SMSBIOS was configured as iMac 14,2 (for Mac OS Sierra) and I change to Mac Pro 5,1 and the results improved dramatically:

SSD test is better, but I think the test is so simple and short, anyhow, I strongly recommend investigate for the hackintosh which is the best profile for your configuration.

 

By the other hand, I installed a Win 10 pro in other SSD and got even better results, around 1250 points, better RAM speed 8000MB/s and a little better GPU results.

Are windows & mac novabench results comparable?

 

Best regards,

David.

The windows and mac results are comparable; however, often Mac will have lower GPU on after-market cards due to driver and other differences.
