According to MacPlus with additional confirmation from MacRumors, Snow Leopard 10A432 has gone Golden Master.  While most developers haven’t gotten their hands on this 10A432 version, someone has been testing it out at popular benchmarking site Geekbench using a MacBook Pro.  The results were taken down for whatever reason but live on in Google’s cache.
