I just tried Mathematica 7.0
In comparison to Mathematica 6.0.3, 7.0 seems to be by
factor of 2 slower under OS X.
When I run the "Mathematica Benchmark Test Mathematica 6.0" from
Karl UnterKofler I get for
Mathematica 6.0.3: Benchmark = 0.97038
Mathematica 7.0: Benchmark = 0.471266
The numbers obtained by Mathematica#s own
BenchmarkReport are comparable, however: 1.88 vs. 1.91.
If 7.0 is really so much slower on a Mac as indicated by
the UnterKofler test, then is hardly good news.
So, what is your experience?
(numbers were generated on a MacBook Pro 2.2 GHz Intel
Core 2 Duo, OS X 10.5.5)
