Barefeats has posted some detail-lacking results from testing a pre-production G5. Quote: "8/9/03 -- Here's a tidbit for you weekend surfers: I tested a pre-production G5 Power Mac with dual 2GHz processors recently. I promised not to publish the results but I can say that it is faster than the 3GHz Pentium 4 in all but one of my famous "real world" tests. And that's without running Panther version of OS X or G5 optimized software. Conclusion: If you ordered a G5, you won't be disappointed. If you are on the fence, I say jump... especially since I'm in the que ahead of you." Looks promising enough to me!
