    with doom 3's recommended (not minimum) system requirements being a 2.0 g5 or better, how will a dual 1.8 with a x800 perform? i know the game isn't out yet, but it should run fairly smooth, no?

    It should run ok with that card.. Will have to wait and see though. But you should be fine.

    Does Doom 3 fully support multiple processors?

    I don't think so...

    I wouldn't be surprised if Doom 3 goes the 2k4 route and dumps sound processing on the second processor.

    quake3 supports smp..on windows/linux...dont know about mac.

    there may be some kind of hidden support. you'll have to wait until its released!

    The Mac version of Quake is smp too. Thats why Macs are so much faster than a PC in Quake.

    I hope Doom 3 for mac is multiprocessor aware too.

    As you said, the game isn't out. Any answer you get is going to be a guess at best.

    Unless of course you see a post from John Carmack... believe that one!

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Knowing that Aspyr did the conversion, it's probably awful. Lately, it seems things are bloated since Westlake are not doing the conversions. Yes, I know that Glenda is at Aspyr now but Brad was the better one at porting.

    Brad works for Aspyr and has for over a year now. Most of the Mac developers at Aspyr are ex-Westlake employees. Glenda doesn't do any coding. She's managing now.
