"Apple has issued SPEC benchmarks for its new 2GHz Dual CPU workstation, pitting it against a two-way Dell Xeon and a 3Ghz Pentium 4 machine."
Check it out at The Register (http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/39/32498.html) ...

If anyone actually manages to find the entries for the benchmarks in the list provided on the SPEC site, I'd like to see them :-)
Just tell me what to search for, would be much appreciated.
- formatting added so I don't get another URL to the Apple site -
Thats a fair question ... I'd like to see it aswell ...

That doesn't show all the tests results, and it's not on the SPEC site either :-)

I don't actually think they are new, they were about when the G5 was announced.
OTOH these (http://www.chaosmint.com/benchmarks/powermac-g5-ps7bench/) were just posted by a Mac user.
Apart from a few tests the 1.6GHz for the most part keeps up with top end PCs which is pretty impressive going. They should be even faster with Photoshop 8.0 and Panther.

A clutch of other benchmarks have been released by Apple, including a Quake 3 benchmark at 1024x768 giving the G5 a score of 337 frames per second compared to the Pentium's 275, and impressive Photoshop and Cubase plug-in scores
Uhhh... VSync off? :-)

AMD Athlon XP 2000+ (1.67Ghz), Apple G5(1.6Ghz) & G4 contrasted (with Open GL and Cinebench 2003) refer to
PS; The motherboard chipset was not disclosed for Athlon XP based system (i.e. VIA KT600 vs nForceII 400 Ultra). VIA KT600 was proven (in most cases) to be slower than nForce2 400 non-Ultra/Ultra chipsets.
