The GeekBench Challenge

I just discovered this nice little tool, which you can find at and I thought we could share the results for different low end boxes. So I decided to run it on the three boxes that I have now, at AlienVPS, BuyVM, and ChicagoVPS.

I should note that these are the AlienVPS 192 (1 core), BuyVM 128 (1 core), and ChicagoVPS 1 GB (4 core). I don't know if if the 32 bit version of GeekBench uses more than 1 core, but all VMs are running 32 bit OSes.

Also, for the AlienVPS and BuyVM, all services were turned off. Unfortunately, I couldn't do that for the ChicagoVPS, which may have contributed to the large variance.

You can see the individual results here:

Here are the machines:

AlienVPS: AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6128
BuyVM: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU L5520 @ 2.27GHz
ChicagoVPS: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5620 @ 2.40GHz

The averages over 3 tests were as follows:

AlienVPS: 2165
BuyVM: 2698
ChicagoVPS: 4953

For reference, I also tested two of my personal computers, which are a Core 2 Duo 2.8 GHz with Linux Mint 10 (32 bit), and a Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHz with Debian 6 (64 bit), which scored 3768 and 4315, respectively.
