What Intel processor is similar to PowerPC G4 and G3?
Similar in what way? Performance? P4 would be my guess.
Probably Pentium 3 and below. Pentium 4 would be a little beyond what a G4 could offer in terms of CPU speed and equivalent features. May I ask why you want to know?
I was just curious. Also, would Core Duo blow PPC G4 away?
Yes. Barefeats did a comparison of the minis and even the Core Solo was faste than the G4. Or was it someone else that did the test?
EDIT: It was priamtelabs that did the test.
Do you have a link to that article?
Scroll to about the middle. The Core Solo benches nearly twice as fast as the G4 at the same clock speed.
