Post your iTunes visualization fps

in General Discussion edited January 2014
... because I really wonder as to how slow this here ibook 600 (14.1") really is.

So, if you'd all please quickly run this little inter-mac benchmark:

iTunes 3 (please), os X, options

Full screen, large, not 'faster but rougher", using opengl, display fps (of course)

said ibook performs only 13 to 14 fps while playing a spoken-word mp3 @ 192 kbps.

bit disappointing.

how do you do.

    48fps on a TiBook. pretty consistant. it'll hiccup above for a bit, dip below for a bit, but stays at about 48 most of the time.

    20 fps normal

    50 fps using the "rough but faster" setting

    Powermac G4, 400 mhz, original Radeon 32 mb

    I've always been disappointed with iTunes visuals in OS X. I used to use G-Force in OS 9, but it's not even usable in OS X on my system....too slow and it doesn't follow the rhythm properly.

    I don't understand why visuals are so much slower in OS X, since I thought that open GL in OS X is faster than in OS 9!
