So, I overclocked my gf's 1.25Ghz G4 Mini to 1.5Ghz last night, and as that's the same speed as my 1.5Ghz Core Solo Mini, I thought I'd run XBench and Geekbench and compare some numbers. Now, on XBench, the Intel Mini blew away the G4 on the overall score. 77.27 compared to 41.46. Not even close. Most of this comes from much better graphics, disk, and RAM performance. Oddly enough, though, the G4 beat out the Intel Mini in overall CPU score. I don't know if this is a glitch with the notoriously crappy XBench, or if the G4 is just better than a Core Solo: red is G4, blue is Core Solo The Geekbench scores were a little more straight-forward, though. I got a 70 even on the G4 Mini, and on the Intel I got a 127.7 (this was an older result, with only 1GB of RAM in it). I've read that Geekbench is a bit more fair than XBench, but I take both with a grain of salt, of course. Oh, and for comparison, pre-overclock, the G4 at 1.25Ghz was getting a score of 62.1. Here are the specs of both, for better comparison: G4 Mini: 1.5Ghz G4/40GB HD (4200rpm)/1GB PC2700 RAM/Radeon 9200 (32MB) Intel Mini: 1.5Ghz Core Solo/60GB HD (5400rpm)/1.5GB PC2-5300 RAM/GMA950 (64MB) I don't know if this helps anyone, but I just thought it was interesting, and felt I should share. Maybe it'll help someone make a decision if they're wavering between the two. If you want more detail or to compare to your own system, go to the XBench results site (http://db.xbench.com/) and look up "Mr. Doom" for the G4 (there's a pre-overclock and post-overclock one) and "Selene" for the Core Solo Mini. Enjoy!
