in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Now that the Xseve G5's are shipping can anyone here shed some light on the performance of the Xserve G5. Are there any benchmark tests comparing the performance of PowerMac Dual 2.0 (970 chip) with Xserve G5 Dual 2.0 (970fx chip). Is there any incerement in the performance with Apple using the new 90 nm chip.

    What kind of benchmarks? I/O? Processor-intensive/number crunching? WWW-based stuffs?

    I/O becnhmarks, photoshop benchmarks etc, also the power comsumpton of the new chips. Any/all benchmarks that are processor intensive. Just want to see how the new 970fx chip compares to the old 970 chip.
