  1. macrumors newbie



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

    Thank you!

    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.

    Great find MM.

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

    How Many Cores Can What Use?

    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.
