So, the "G5 Introduction" movie on the Apple site has interviews with various folks. http://www.apple.com/powermac/video/ One of those interviewed is the President of PIXAR (not to be confused with Jobs, the CEO). The footage shows Renderman on the G5 and the President of PIXAR states that using Renderman, the G5 is the fastest desktop in the world. While Pixar invested in a Xeon renderfarm awhile ago, have folks read that Pixar is moving to G5s for their artist workstations? It would certainly be exciting to see the G5 capture that special effects / animation segment once dominated by highend unix and recently converted to the Xeon. The reported renderman benchmark comparison is another exciting note of praise for the new G5s.
