Here are some performance graphs showing Apple's lackluster G5 machines. As you can see the G4 holds it own just fine with OSX, which is still mainly a 32bit OS. (One or two files are 64bit)Apple!Freak said:Can anyone point me in the direction of benchmarks comparing the 1.5Ghz G4 Processor to the 1.8Ghz G5 processor?
Thanks in advance.
Separate OS on each core?? I hadn't heard that!stockscalper said:MacWorld just posted them. A 1.5 GHZ G4 had a speedmark of 136, whereas a 1.8 GHZ G5 posted 148. Not a lot of difference with most of the speed differential likely due to the increase speed of the chip. The faster frontside bus helps, but not as much as you would think. G4's are great chips and with the new dual core G4 coming out (which is capable of running a separate operating system in each core) the G4 is going to make a big run at the G5.
