They May Be On To Something...

Macintouch has done some additional performance testing on its new iMac G5, this time with Cinema 4D's Cinebench benchmarking tests. When the testers used a version of Cinema 4D somewhat optimized for the new G5 processor, the results showed the astounding performance improvements this new CPU can make. On a clock-equalized basis, the G5 machines showed at least twice the performance of the G4-based Macs.

The lesson is simple: if you have a G5-based Mac, make sure you're using software specifically optimized for this processor.
