With this app you can compare mac performance to PC performance! The results it gives are quite consistent after each run.

Give it a try, it's cool... on the haxial site you can find a small comparison table where you can compare your performance to various macs and pcs performances!

Hahaha, my 400 mhz G3 scored higher than a P3 600 mhz!!! Must be because of the RISC architecture and 1 meg L2 cache :P

Ok guys, here are the first results:

PowerMac G4 DP 1Ghz (Quicksilver) with 1024MB RAM:

(first test made on the machine)

Encrytion Test;

2:01
121,725 milliseconds
16.9M/sec

Verification Test;

2:24
141.257 milliseconds
56.8M/sec

Dont know if this test is MP aware... There is not much difference with the PowerBook G4 800Mhz.

i'll do the test as soon as i restart. but since i don't do that often, i might have to wait awhile... whoa!> uptime is 6 days 3 hours and 19 minutes!:D i might go for a whole week and restart on Saturday night.:eek: :p :D

whilst i don't want ot hurt your feelings in any way but ....

I have a feeling that you guys aren't shunning this benchmark because it favours the mac. You have to ask, on what system was it compiled for each platform. On what platform was the code written. Which platfrom optimisations are used.

If all of these are the latest available for each platfrom then let the test roll on. Mail bomb Apple to let them know, and the whole world - "We have an un-biased benchmark that shows who is the best"

In the future more sub-benchmarks will be added, so results should improve when a new version of Haxial Benchmark is released.
