i used my 24 2.4 all night. transferring 20,000+ raw images while installing CS3 and Lightroom, while importing my old library of 7,000+ songs and i didn't hear any noise whatsoever. totally silent.
ps: while doing all this i still got a geekbench score of 2232 and when i stopped doing these processes it got 3372, that is with only one gig of ram right now too.
and for those who fear the glossy..... it is wonderful. so much better than the mbp/mb gloss because of the glass. the whole time i worked on the system i did not notice that it was glossy.
That's all well and good, but I still have yet to see any conclusive benchmark tests yet, I'll be watching this thread very closely. If I saw an Oblivion or Prey benchmark I'd pretty much know what I'm getting into. I think I'll have to wait awhile before I get any good boot camp benchmarks though.Read the Ars Technia review. There is a review of the new imac, here is a link to the section on performance.
Well i ran it on the comp in my sig with internet and a music downloader running and it got a 2547. And on XBench v1.3 it got a 117.43How does that benchmark compare to the older Imacs?
Can someone please post this info?
