Terrible Geekbench 3 results should I replace my i7-860 processor?
My aged but serviceable iMac is running slow. I installed an ssd recently (clean install of Yosemite) hoping to improve things... (it worked so well on my old MBP).
I recently installed Geekbench 3 and my scores are about half of other people's iMacs of identical spec.
The numbers are particularly bad in integer and floating point results.
Wondering if there's anything I can do?
Could I buy a new i7-860 processor like this one: http://www.cpumedics.com/bx80605i7860.ht...
would that solve the problem do you think?
Could it be anything else?
Hopefully it's not software - very recent clean install of Yosemite on an SSD should be OK, right?
I would very much prefer to pay in the order of USD150 rather than shelling for a new mac!
Is this a good question?
