The Performance Edge: PowerBook vs PowerBook - Mano A Mano - Apple's G4 PowerBooks Benchmarked
Tuesday, May 22, 2001
Below we present benchmarks for Apple current G4 PowerBooks. We hope to have more benchmark comparisons and a full review of both PowerBooks for you by the end of the week or early next week. In the results below, for processor intensive activity the 500 MHz PowerBook showed between 16 to 30 percent better performance over the 400 MHz model. There wasn't a lot of difference in hard drive or graphics performance, though the Quake III "Fastest" mode test and CineBench 2000 graphics test, did show the extra muscle of the 500 MHz G4 chip.
