intel mac's performance, debunking the claims of apple hype

Recommended Posts

http://www.macspeedzone.com/html/hardware/...w/06/1_23.shtml

This is one of the best benchmarks done on the intel imac to date, it's more fair than say the macworld benchmark because they take into account how well the app is taking advantage of both cores. Which is an important factor when benchmarking any multiprcessor system. Basically what they are saying is if a test is saying it's only say 20% faster than the G5 imac, it's likely because that particular test is likely not making full use of both cores.

I still don't get those startup times. 20 seconds is nothing special. My PowerBook does it in 17 seconds, and my iMac G5 does it in 15 seconds.

As dual cores become more common in consumer lines, I suppose more apps will start to use the dual cores to their full potential.

I also read the article and found it really interesting.

 

cfsporn must be a really special child whenit comes to start up times.

Btw. with start up times they mean that the normal Mac OSX desktop is there and that you cna start working.

Not that you cna type in your username and password.

And I know you said that you have almsot no apps running on your machines and that is why your start up times are so good.

But hey when I start up I want to have some apps running.

And not wait again until the ones I need to work with are loaded.
