Who’s fastest?  Mac OS X 10.5.7 vs. 10.5.6 vs. 10.5.5 benchmark shootout

“Yesterday evening, Apple finally released Mac OS X 10.5.7 update, both client and server editions. 10.5.6 came out December 15, 2008, so its been awhile,” Bill Fox reports for Macs Only!

“So how fast is 10.5.7? To find out if there are any performance improvements, I ran a graphics-related subset of my speed tests on my dual quad-core 2.8GHz Mac Pro with 6GB of RAM running Mac OS X 10.5.7,” Fox reports.

“There is nothing remarkable speed-wise about the graphics performance of Mac OS X 10.5.7 when using the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT graphics card. I’m hopeful that my new ATI Radeon 4870 graphics card will improve the graphics performance significantly. That will be the subject of my next article,” Fox reports.
