Looks like graphics (OpenGL, UI) is Tiger's weak spot in these PowerBook tests, while it tends to beat Panther in other areas. It's not necessarily the G4 that made the difference (vs. the G5 tower tests that Tiger did better in). It could also be the GPU and the ATI video drivers.

Luckily there's plenty of time for Tiger AND the video drivers to improve before release.

WTF are they running while Xbench is running to get such low results?! My 1.25GHz eMac is consistently higher on all but one or two of the tests.

New avatar icon, eh? :)
