I know there's been a Power Mac review before, but dual 2.5Ghz G% procs and an nVidia 6800 could make for a nice little review.

a Mac is a Mac. so...

Prediction: its gonna suck.

i dont know, its just a hunch.

they did do the "three's a crowd" thing back in december. the G5 lost badly. I dont know how much the G5 has improved since then. Probably not much...

Since you don't know, then it would be good to know right?

A lot has changed since they tested the first time.

We have a dual G5 at work and it screams - but I am not sure how if its faster than our Intel boxes. I would say once a year a bench is in order.

BTW - What they tested in December was a dual proc 2.0G5 Desktop - and it didn't win - but it won more tests than the AMD 64 FX-51.

Every G5 I've used has been screamin' fast.
I'd really like to see how the top-of-the-lines compare to each other.
Not in games, mind you, but things like 3DSMax, Lightwave, Premiere, Photoshop, etc.

I thought the mag was called Maximum PC. Did I miss something? I mean, the Mac has like what, 10 software titles and all propriatary gunk, yeesh, you only need one mag for it. In digest format. And charge $139.95 for an issue too, Mac users expect it. :)
