Following on heels our first look at the Quicksilver 867's
yesterday, a reader (we'll call him John ... mainly because
that's his name), sent us the results of his newly arrived
Quicksilver Dual Processor G4/800. Needless to say, he is
one happy camper. To be honest, other than the Cinebench 2000
test, we have not used the benchmarking utilites he used in
his tests. We will look into them when we get our "on
order" G4/800 in hand.
If anyone else out there has more results for any of the
new Quicksilver Macs, or general impressions of the machines,
them on in and we will post them. And again thanks go
out to John for "sharing the love"
A Dual-800 with 768megs of RAM. This unit does not have a Superdrive. CD-RW only.
Apple "TwinView" Graphics card. Aside from those build-to-order requests, it is a stock unit.
Cinebench 2000 test:
Shading (4D): 7.08 CB
Shading (OpenGl): 9.06 CB
Raytrace (Single): 9.93 CB
Raytrace (Multi): 17.22 CB - [ editors note: Yum!! - The Quicksilver G4/867 received a score of 10.76
making the G4/800 60% faster]
Throughput V1.5 test:
Altivec Fractal test:
(Stock settings except Maximum Count set to 65536)
That's all I've got so far. I love this wonderful beast!
