    Okay, so I am curious as to how the tests would pan out. Does anyone know or have any benchmarks or experience in how this test would pan out?

    Apple G5 (desktop or xServe, althought the xServe would be better equipped for the head to head) vs. current SGI workstation.

    SGI was a work horse for visuallization and graphics, and perhaps still is. You still spend a fortune on a SGI Fuel, Tezro, or Octane 2, but how do the new comparitivity equipped G5s run doing the same types of tasks?

    What is your take?

    I like my SGI O2 Machine, but its old so theres no way it can go head to head with a G5. I dont like Irix, but whatever.

    Go G5.
