MacSpeedZone's 5.0 Comparison Generator: Compare, On The Fly, The Performance of Current Apple Macintosh Computers To Older Ones

Note: this page is no longer being updated

Welcome to the MacSpeedZone's MacBench 5.0 Comparison Generator. To use the generator, simply select one machine from each column and compare the scores above. MacBench 5.0 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a Mac's processor, disk, and graphics subsystems to name a few. MacBench normalizes all scores relative to the base machine, a Power Macintosh G3/300. The base machine receives a score of 1000. For all MacBench tests, higher numbers mean better performance. For more detailed information on MacBench click here. We also have a Processor Comparison Generator where you can compare the performance of most shipping CPU upgrades to your Mac. To get the the front page of MacSpeedZone click here Note: MacBench 5.0 does not take advantage of the AltiVec instructions of the G4 Machines. Testing we have done shows up to a 5 times increase in performance for G4 Machines running AltiVec ready applications over a similar clocked G3. The G4 scores below will not reflect this.
