Power Macs and RAM Question

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Just out of curiosity how much of performance difference is there with the G5s between the lines with different amounts of RAM? How much faster are dual 2s & 2.5s from say 8 gigs to 4 gigs to 2 gigs? What would be the performance difference of the 2 with 2 gigs of RAM vs a 1.8 with 4 gigs of RAM?

    There's a decent comparison that was done over at xlr8yourmac.com on this very subject.

    Here's the link:


    I work at an ad agency that employs a decent amount of artists using a mix of G4 and G5 powermacs. I made sure that we're all running somewhere between 1.5 to 2gb each because of the benefits of having a decent amount of RAM. If I could get the boss to drop an extra 2gb in the G5's for the multimedia peeps, I certainly would do so.

    Dual 2.5 with 4.5GB of ram is really freakin fast
