    PMac 933

    98.35 is my score. 1 GIG RAM
    Now we can all compare the machines with a standard test. Hopefully the 1.42DP will kick some serious butt

    DP a raw deal?

    These scores are interesting in comparing these machines:

    700 iMac score= 61
    233 MHZ and 37pts difference
    933 1GIG RAM score = 98
    1,077 MHZ and 21pts difference
    DP 1GIG 1GIG RAM score = 119

    Seems to me that second processor is a totaly waste of money, and I would rather get 233 MHZ increase on a single proc, then get another proc.

    233/37= 6.26MHZ per Point
    1077/21 = 51.28MHZ per Point

    You do the math...

    Dual 867 768mb

    110.8

    The scores for DP's should be much higher if both processors were utilised efficiently. If you have CPU monitor opened while running xbench you'll see that neither CPU is being used more than 50% of its capacity. If it does than the other processor suffers.
    Even if you combine both processors they are never being used more than 50-55%, this is true for all the apps that I use. This even seems to be true for apps that push the fact that they utilise MP's.

    Dual G4 867-768/ram

    Very nice program.

    Looks like my dual 867 performs like the other at the same speed.

    ps! My first post;)

    XBench hasn't and doesn't support Dual Processor reporting. So what you see in the tests is the result of one processor.

    If you want more information on XBench look at this thread .

    Also just to keep everything together please post all your XBench results in the previously mentioned thread.

    Use of second proc

    XBench hasn't and doesn't support Dual Processor reporting. So what you see in the tests is the result of one processor.

    How does a DP score 119 and a 933 score 100 if its only showing 1 processor. I think want you tried to say is it doesnt effectively use the second proc, or it doesnt use the 2nd proc to its maximum.

    Re: Use of second proc

    No not at all. It doesn't use the second processor. Plain and simply the score you are referring to is the system score. The system score is influenced by all factors of the system (i.e. disc drive, vCard, system bus, etc.).

    RE: BareFeats

    I guess it means that you can't take just one review or benchmark (or opinion) as a complete evaluation of a product.

    I do like to visit barefeats.com on a regular basis and I'm glad to see the site's back up.

    Take a look. It says they're running 10.2.5

    Also:
    1) The 1.25GHz G4s are revision 3.2, my dual 867 is 2.1, as are the 1GHz machines. They're NOT overclocked 867s!
    2) the 12" Powerbook is rev 3.3
    3) The 12" Powerbook has an underclocked L2 cache
