[PC-BSD Testing] FF3.5.2 runs slower on PCBSD than Windows?

I should also point out that running FF3.5.2 on a 4 year old Toshiba laptop with a 1.5Ghz processor and 1.2 GB RAM with XP actually loads Gmail faster by a hair.  Opening a small text doc in OO takes about 20 seconds on PCBSD but 24 seconds on the laptop.

Very disappointed so far.

Have you tried installing geekbench with runports? I can provide some performance metrics to compare against my system:AMD Athlon X2 5000+ BE @ 2.9GHz4GB RAM2x 7200RPM 320GB WD RAID 0Asus M2N-E
GeForce 7600GTPC-BSD 7.1.1 - AMD64

I built what should have been a kick-ass system with:


Intel i7-920
6GB RAM
RAID-0 7200RPM drives 
Asus  P6T Motherboard - (Intel on-board RAID)
Radeon HD-4250 VGA
PCBSD 64Bit

But in various benchmarks it comes up short every time.

I just ran this browser test and I scored 1296 pts using FF3.5.2 VS double that running on Windows ??  It's not clear what OS the average results came from, but I presume it was Vista.


My benchmark results breakdown:



	
		Rendering - 1247
		
	

	
		Social networking - 1833
		
		
		
	

	
		Complex graphics - 3134
		
		
		
	

	
		Data - 1714
		
		
		
	

	
		DOM operations - 1264
		
		
		
	

	
		Text parsing - 741
		
		

		
	

I did some other OS benchmarks too recently, and was similarly underwhelmed.  Anyone have a clue why?  Anyone else done any benchmarking?

This machine is sucking up 175 Watts in electricity and I don't appear to be getting my money's worth.  Bumming...
