Assuming the copy of Mac OS X 10.6 that we just pre-ordered does arrive on Friday, we should have some in-depth performance numbers beginning Friday night or Saturday. For this initial article we will be looking at the Mac OS X "Snow Leopard" performance compared to Mac OS X 10.5.8 "Leopard". We have also started preparing for this comparison and getting any last minute tests into the Phoronix Test Suite for running this Mac OS X benchmarking.
Look for plenty of performance numbers to come out in the coming days on Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" at Phoronix, thanks to our multi-platform benchmarking software. From earlier this year you can find our Ubuntu 9.04 vs. Mac OS X 10.5.6 benchmarks along with many other articles.
