I just thought that I would do a comparison between Tiger and Panther uning Xbench. The specs of my machine are: 1.42GHz G4 DP, 1GB RAM, 2*120GB HD, dont know what graphics card but the ripple doesn't work in dashboard! Anyway the basic results: Tiger Panther Overall 165.62 156.36 CPU 176.53 176.50 Thread 226.78 192.31 Memory 181.38 173.73 Quartz 161.87 200.68 OpenGL 158.45 136.12 User Interface 298.60 282.17 Disk Test 92.25 81.48 Dont really have a clue what most of these mean but I suppose it shows that Tiger is faster all round. Both tests where done with no other applications running. I dont know if anyone would be interested in these results but anyway it gave me something to do!
