    I am running a 2013 iMac 27 fully loaded. The upgrade to Mavericks was as fast as can be expected. And the performance afterwards, is every bit as fast as it was before. I did not put a stopwatch on it before, so I can't tell you what it is later, but it is noticeably at least the same. The only negative thing I have seen so far, is that with a Magic Trackpad, swiping your fingers to go forward and back in a document is a bit more finicky that it was before.

    I Migrated to Apple and OSX in 2008 because of Windows Vista and happy until now. Mavericks is SOOOOO Slow. Running Repair Disk permissions really helped but still it is slower than 10.8.5.

    I'm reluctant to run the free OnyX app until that is updated to work with 10.9. Titanium software says they are working on a release to work with Mavericks. http://www.titanium.free.frsay they are working on it. toot soon, i hope.

     

    I would expect a major OS Upgrade would be an improvement rather than going backwards. Tim, please address this before it gets out of control!

    geekbench and novabench gave me almost the third what i expect 1400  for geekbench when it had gave me around 3800 on moutain lion, novabench gave me  221 , my old macbook air core2duo 2010 had 280!

    this is is a disaster,

    ihad some minors Error on disk, which was successufily repaired, still i suffering from sloweness

    First I would suggest openning activity monitor to see if there are any

    runaway processes, memory hogging issues, or excessive disk or network

    access.

     

    I would also suggest booting into safe mode and see if the slowness

    issue remains.  If it works fine in safe mode, then you need to investigate

    all third party apps/drivers and also, if you have any start up items you should

    disable them to see if performance improves and if so, add back one at a time

    until the offender is found.

    FWIW, I compared what is posted for Geekbench scores here

    for 64bit multicore: http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarks

    to what get get running Geekbench with Mavericks.  Results:

       2011 MacMini Server, 2.0 GHz, i7 quad core-

                    Posted rating - 8501

                    My Mavericks install - 9501

       Early 2011 Macbook Pro 13", 2.7 GHz, i7 dual core

                    Posted rating - 5567

                    My Mavericks install - 7382

     

    I certainly feel that the machines are performing faster

    including Windows 8.1 VMs using Parallels.  Even Photoshop CS6

    seems to be doing things a little quicker on these machines.

     

    Follow what I suggested in my earlier post and see what results you get.

    Thanks

    i tried safe mode but  it change nothing geekbench(32bits) still 700/1400 when it should be 1500/3500.

    there is no errors on my SSD.  Activity monitor show very low CPU, SSD, Mem use  .

    i kept novabench score of my old 2010 core2duo macbook air(mac os x 10.7.4) it gave the core2duo CPU score  of  110 when giving me now 95 for my i5 1.6ghz!!!!!

    i tried Handbrake conversion and it gave be around 40fps when it use to score 100-120fps on same file same setting.

    You should have had better results from Geekbench even with Mountain Lion, and Mavericks should perform better still. Be sure to select the 64 bit tests.

     

    If you start a new Discussion and include the troubleshooting results I requested earlier, whatever is wrong with your Mac can be addressed.

     

    Thanks!

    Should be tested at 64 bit then compare results because Mavericks is

    a fully 64bit OS.

     

    Also, what have you found when checking Activity Monitor for

    CPU, Memory Usage, etc.

  • ElectroMac74 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    thanks anyway, may have to wait for a 10.9.1!

  • ElectroMac74 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    unfortunately , i do not have the 64bits geekebench ,

    An OS X update, if and when Apple decides to release one, won't fix whatever is wrong with your Mac.
