Decided I'd try Geekbench tonight. Found and used version 2.2.7 which, to my understanding is the last PowerPC version.

The score I got was 1255. Now, I'm new to this so I think this is a good score, but I have no idea where it stacks up. However, everymac.com had some benchmarks. I assume they were stock models because the only G5s that had higher scores than my QS G4 were the 2.0Ghz and above models.

Attached is my report if anyone wants to look at it.

So…is this a good score or just average?

P.S. Bumped the voltage and the GHZ setting of my dualie up to 1.73Ghz tonight. Seems to be doing fine and feels like a rocket.

Report.

Quad G5 gets around 3200 - 3500 on GeekBench 2 (there is also 3 out but apparently not for PPC). My Macbook is apparently almost as fast on that test as Quad G5 and this is by far low end machine by now, well, time goes on.

I tried Geekbench on my Quad in 32-Bit mode and got a 3518. Unfortunately, I could not try 64-Bit mode as I purchased a key and it is only for GB3. I am emailing them about switching it to a key for 2.2.7.

My dual 1.42 MDD benched 1217 a couple of days ago so it looks like you're doing pretty good there!

If you could share the FP & Integer scores that'd be a lot more representative of pure CPU grunt (because of the slow RAM in these G4's scoring in the low 100s it brings the whole system score down, especially your quicksilver w/ PC133 sticks).

My MDD @1.42GHz;
FP: 1498
I: 1602

EDIT: Scrap that, just noticed the little 'Report.' link. She's a flyer!

Cool! Yeah starting to see that it's pretty good for a QS G4. Be interesting to see what happens once I get the Radeon 9800 Pro installed. Right now I have the old NVIDIA GeForce 2MX installed because I want to drive the 20" Cinema Display. I still have the Radeon 9200 and the Rage 128 in though.

The sucker is quick now. :D

Ha! Quicksilver! I crack myself up! :)

GPU has no effect on Geekbench.

I always doubt that these benchmark tools provide any real data.

But anyway on everymac.com you can compare models and unde rteh name of the model you see the average geekbench score.

My MDD G4 upgraded with the dual 1.33GHz CPU out of an XServe got 1150. Compared with the 757 it was scoring before with dual 867's, I'm rather happy with the upgrade. :)
