PC Magazine reviews dual 2GHz Power Mac G5

PC Magazine has posted a complete review of the dual 2GHz Power Mac G5, giving it a four out of a possible five rating. “When Apple’s Steve Jobs introduced the Apple Power Mac G5 this summer as the fastest personal computer any company had built to date, we took it with a grain of salt… After testing a loaded ($4,349 direct, after we opted for more RAM and upgraded graphics) dual 2.0GHz Power Mac G5 on a range of high-end content creation applications and comparing the results with a similarly configured (and priced) Dell Precision 650 Workstation running dual 3.06-GHz Xeon processors, we see that indeed the G5 is generally as fast as the best Intel-based workstations currently available (see performance table).”
