G3 Processor Upgrades Test Results - MacBench

These scores are in conjunction with our G3 Accelerator Feature. When reviewing these scores please bear in mind that we used the 604e/200 card as our base reference. This processor is no slouch! The 604e excels at floating point functions while the G3 is better at integer functions. If you are upgrading from a slower processor you should see an even more significant improvement in performance.
