    I love those Adobe performance specs.

    They should have replaced the Dells's Voodoo 3 with at least a GeForce 2 MX.

    Well...



    Since my thread about this got moved to 'current hardware' (while this one didn't) I'll post this here



    I've scaned the many threads but so far I haven't seen this question addressed yet...



    Given the following specs:

    -------------------------------------------------------

    o Dual 867MHz, 1GHz or 1.25GHz PowerPC G4 processors

    o Velocity Engine vector processing unit

    o Full 128-bit internal memory data paths

    o Powerful floating-point unit supporting single-cycle, double-precision calculations

    o Data stream prefetching operations supporting four simultaneous 32-bit data streams

    o 256K on-chip L2 cache running at processor speed

    o Up to 2MB DDR SRAM L3 cache per processor, with up to 4.6GBps throughput

    o Up to 167MHz system bus supporting over 1.3GBps data throughput

    o 256MB or 512MB of PC2100 or PC2700 DDR SDRAM main memory supporting up to 2.7GBps throughput

    o Four DIMM slots supporting up to 2GB of DDR SDRAM using one of the following

    -256MB DIMMs (64-bit-wide, 128-Mbit)

    -512MB DIMMs (64-bit-wide, 256-Mbit)

    -------------------------------------------------------



    Are we still looking at a 'less than full' (don't wanna say hack) DDR? or has MOT gotten off their buts and done something good for us?



    Looks to me like its still not 'full DDR' but I'd like to hear from others...
