The results of the Mac Benchmark Chart is stripped. Much of the important data is removed (from user submitted results). There is no information about the installed Operating System, Processor ID, Motherboard, BIOS and Memory. But you need to have this data, otherwise the results are completely useless. Just look at it:
What does that tell me? Nothing! Without the missing details, that could even be a coffee grinder. That’s how much I value it. Now it is meaningless, but it could have been so much better. For example. There should at least be one reference (link) to a user submitted Geekbench result where all data is visible. If not all of the used results. Also. You cannot compare one (Mac) result with another. And what about graphics?
Also. When you visit Mac Benchmark Chart and click on one of the links in the chart, then click on another link, then you’ll find that all links are broken. Look here:
This is what I get right now. Not good.
Well. I don’t know about you, but for now, I am going to ditch the Geekbench.app and look for something better. A tool / website that does not hide significant details. Stuff that is uploaded by users, and then get ripped out of the results.
Ehm. No. I have no idea why Geekbench does this. I’m sure that the links will get fixed. Sooner or later. But we can only hope that the Mac chart will be improved and made meaningful again.
Edit: I don’t have access to my e-mail and can’t contact Geekbench right now, but someone (else) should at least inform them about the broken links. Thank you!
Update: Good news. The broken links are now fixed. Now, please, add references. Thank you!
