    If you have any games (either mac or windows if you're planning on putting windows on it) then have a play and see how far you can push the settings... just some notes on your gaming experience would be lovely!

    Cheers dude,
    Fred

    Soon as I get home I'll get right on that, I'm curious of temperatures as well!

    I play WoW so I'll run it for a good bit and see how hot I can get it.

    Hi..could you immerse it in a bath of cold water whilst burning a CD please. I'm interested in how waterproof they make the casing!

    Thanks

    Thanks for testing!


    3DMark06 running on Windows XP SP2 (via Bootcamp) would be a great test for a Windows Gaming environment :)

    2.8 extreme is only 2 core

    I hope you are not expecting a quad core imac... 2.8 extreme is only a duo with a fancy name. I just received mine and am thinking I should have gone with the monster savings of a 20". Still love the iMac... but a lot of money for .4 ghz and 4"!

    Yeah i think we knew that and where does it indicate that one things it could be quad core.

    Surely it is more like 0.4 GHz x 2 =0.8 GHz.

    hey folks,

    Its all about the Windows XP SP2 games trial. People appear to be testing the 2600 pro (or xt whatevea) under OSX, the ATI drivers under Windows are far more advanced. Please trial some of the latest games about, and let us know FPS. If my IMac 2.8 does not perform its on EBAy ;)

    Peace, Joe
