    heh...kinda funny 'bout that last part he said. i watched a thing on the history channel tonight about digitech stuff. in everysingle category, one of the pioneers (ie personal computer, digital camera, pda, etc) was apple. it always got their first, to be copied by "wintel weenies" (lol) later on.

    all i know is i'm savin up for a 970. if apple does switch to intel, i shall kick their collective asses.

    hmmmm, it's hard to take someone serious when every other word they use is weenie

    and there are major questions about those benchmarks he quoted due to the bryce being used and the fact half of the benchmarks used were found elsewhere

    pretty much..... it was mixture of the same numbers being found on barefeats without the 970 scores (meaning numbers were just copied, tests not performed), bryce on capable of using a single processor (where in the bench marks there were significant performance gains using dual processors), and i'm not positive about this last part, but i believe they claimed to be using a version of bryce that hasn't been and will not be made........

    he should've watched his sources a lil closer before writing that

    and definetly shouldn't have used weenie so much

    I'd be sure to take those benchmarks with at least a grain of salt, seeing as there is no citing of a source for them....but still be optimistic :cool:
