    Can anyone run SuperPi on a G5 2.0GHz iMac to see how fast it calculates Pi to 2M DP? I'd like to see how it compares with my current PC's

    So far (not done all the PC's yet)

    Compaq Laptop Athlon 2400-M, 256Mb Ram = 2m 39.5s
    Home Built Desktop Athlon 1Ghz, 256Mb Ram = 5m 25.1s
    Home Built Athlon 2800 Sempron, 512Mb Ram = 2m 14.8s
    NEC Athlon 2600-M, 256Mb Ram = 2m 52.42s

    In fact, it would be interesting to see what any Mac does it in! So if you have a G3, G4 or G5 of any configuration, run the program and post your results!

    Will try Macs tonight...

    here is my work Vaio @ 2M (superpi 1.1)

    Sony Vaio Laptop Pentium 4-M 2GHz, 512Mb Ram = 3m 39s

    Macs TBD

    In super_pi directory in console. What exactly do I type to run the test you want? I never used this program before.

    mycomputer:~/super_pi user$

    What next?
