It's actually more related to the G4.Dang it. i thought the 604ev was a g3
When it comes to gaming, and particularly Mac ports of the game, 1 GHz is 1 GHz regardless of processor type. That is almost a verbatim quote from Aspyr.The sims requires a G3 233 mhz. The 9600/350 is more powerful than a g3. I think it should play the sims just fine However, this is a quirk of me. I think that the more ghz it is, the more powerful the cpu is. That's not the case with the PPC 604 250mhz. G3 can beat that. But 350mhz 604ev vs 233mhz g3, oh my gosh, i think the 604ev will win, though i'm not sure
Also called the Velocity Engine by Apple It's a vector processing unit (commonly called SIMD instructions nowadays) found on the G4 and later. For apps that can take advantage it can provide a large performance benefit for certain types of workload.Uh, what is altivec?
Huh, the requirements are similar to the sims 1. Then i guess the 9600/350 with about 512-1024 mb of ram will run it just fine. Anyone agree?It's actually more related to the G4.
In any case, I highly doubt a game would outright forbid you from running based on the name of the CPU. That's generally only the case when installing OS's. I'd bet it will work without a problem. Top 604e's are better than low end G3's.
My 8600/250 with a stock 604e can play games like Age of Empires II without a problem.
