Hey all just wanted to drop these scores in. With 10.2.8 I was getting around what Macworld claims on their review, 78-89 FPS with max settings at 1024x768. I just ran the demo again at 1024x768 with texture detail at max, color depth at 32, geometric detail at High, texture quality at 32, and lighting set to light map.....Now I get avg of 102 FPS and if I change lighting to Vertex instead of lightmap jumps up to 123 FPS Avg. Was this supposed to happen with Panther?? My Xbench went up 4 points as well so I guess at least for some of us Panther is doing ok.

i can't wait to see what this does to my 700mhz ibook.... they say panther improves the older machines even more than the new!
