    BareFeats have just published their tests of the new iMac - it shows slightly faster (as expected) CPU benchmarks but considerably better graphics performance (e.g. 50% better FPS in Doom 3) than the old 20" iMac. And even beats the dual 2.0 GHz PowerMac in a couple of the graphics tests.

    And what's more, they say the HD temperature never went above 50 Celsius (130 F) - compared to 89 Celsius (192 F) in the old iMac

    Those graphics benchmarks make me sad, as I will get 2 GHz iMac next week, but its so much slower in games that the new 2.1 Ghz. Anyway R9600 is is still MUCH faster than my GeForce2 :D
