View Full Version : Compare a PowerMac G5 Dual 2.0GHz to the new iMac 2.8GHz?

I was just wondering if there is a benchmark or something that can give me an idea how bad my PowerMac nowadays is :)

I'd google that, but I'd venture to guess and I think I read it around here somewhere else that the iMac would probably handle things a bit better, but the video card in the iMac is still inferior...I think.

For what it's worth. ;)

http://www.primatelabs.ca/blog/2007/08/mac-performance-august-2007/Decoded that's 1828 for a late 2005 Dual CORE 2GHz G5 or 1688 for a June 2004 Dual Processor 2GHz G5 vs 3740 for the iMac 2.8 GHz. More than twice as fast.

Great find MM.
What is more surprising is that the new Extreme iMac beats out the old Quad G5.

What is more surprising is that the new Extreme iMac beats out the old Quad G5.Well that would depend on how many cores you use for each program you want to run. I'd like to see a comparison of Toast 8 DVD image encode on the Quad G5 which uses all 4 cores vs. the iMac Dual 2.8 which can only use two.
