Finally - A quick benchmarking tool for Mac that doesn't take an hour to run, and gives you a quick comparison to other system. Great for troubleshooting and optimizing. Thanks!

Inaccurate for CPU - I was watching my CPU activity durring the test, and it was only utilizing ONE THREAD! My i7 has EIGHT threads! This test is rubbish.

I guess I don’t have a CPU - CPU scores zero, and RAM doesn’t bench. Just skips right over to 4/6 on my ol’ Mac Pro 4,1 with 7870.

Still a zero CPU score - Sorry guys, your update hasn’t fixed the zero CPU bug. Here's a star. With a zero CPU score, you should probably get a zero star rating, but no such thing, just like the CPU score.

Review by Double0iii

Not Reliable - So let me start by saying that this partially works. Now I’ll explain. It performed every test on my 2013 MacBook Air and showed that it had the right spects (4GB RAM, 1.3 i5 CPU, etc). However, with my MacPro not only did it not test the CPU (12-Core 3.46GHz) it also only showed half of my video ram being tested at 1GB (it’s an GTX 770 at 2GB). Also put my RAM at an incredibly low score. This app really isn’t working correctly on the MacPr - MacBook Air, it worked fine. Update: it has given my MacPro a much lower score than my MacBook Air….the MP is light years fast than the Air in evey regard. I wouldn’t trust this app at all. 2 Stars instead of 1 because it worked on my Air.
