Default Early Benchmarks Of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

By now you have likely read all about the features announced for Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" thus far along with seeing plenty of screenshots and videos showing off Launchpad, Mission Control, Versions, the improved mail client, and much more. But how does Apple's next-generation operating system perform? Well, here is a look at the performance of Mac OS X 10.7, including what are likely the first public benchmarks of Mac OS X Lion.

Overall, there is not much to say right now about the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion performance since the single-threaded kernel we were left to use in the current development build certainly provides a capped perspective. However, the switch to the 64-bit kernel by default for Lion will certainly result in a faster "out of the box" experience for many users, as today's tests begin to show. It also looks like there may be some file-system (Journaled HFS+) improvements in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion too, but we will wait for a clean kernel before saying for sure. In terms of the Mac OS X graphics performance, it doesn't appear there are any significant changes in Apple's OpenGL stack at least with this initial developer preview. Mac OS X 10.6 brought a number of speed improvements over Mac OS X 10.5 and hopefully Mac OS X 10.7 will do the same to be faster than Snow Leopard.
