      Only problem I have with Geekbench or any computer benchmark test is that I stiil don't know hw much difference the scores , or comparartive scores make in real life.
      What we need is 'Control Files' on a website for download. Then we could download a royalty free movie, check that test settings are the same and compare encode speeds in Handbrake or similar.
