I just recently got a G5 Quad and I've been researching software for PowerPC. I found that distributed.net RC5-72 client, core for core is still faster than modern Intel processors. Benchmark page: http://cgi.distributed.net/speed/ Each core of my G5 gets about 18.5M Keys/s. Can anyone explain to me How the G5 can keep up with every non-overclocked modern Intel CPUs? I thought the G5 only has around 60 million transistors per core.
