Nothing has really changed. They're awesome machines and still very expensive. I still think having two processors seemed cooler than having one dual-core. Just wish I was rich! Very Happy

Yes, but if you were rich, you could have 2 dual-core processors now.

That thing has a total of 10GHz CPU power, and not with any hyper-threading silliness either.

I want one. Maybe I'll buy myself one as a retirement present.

If you max everything out, you get a price tag of AU $32,000 with an EU discount!

I think I'd rather buy a new car for that much.... maybe a new BMW Mini Cooper...

There's a lot of debate online about whether the old dual-processor machines are faster than the new single-processor dual-core machines. Out of curiosity, does anyone know for certain one way or the other?

I do not have any links but I do remember reading that the dual core might be slower. But not by much aka “we can measure it but you will not see any difference using it”

The big advantage is heat; one processor with dual cores will generate less heat thus saving in cooling solutions. This will allow a higher clock for a tiny boost in performance. Not to mention the proverbial dual “dual core”

Hopefully this will cause the dual processor Macs to drop in price. I have the “wants”
for one real bad……..

Here is a Linky

Does anybody know of any way I can get my PC 6800GT (AGP) to work in a Dual Proc Power Mac?

Barefeats has posted new benchmarks which are, in my opinion, pretty underwhelming. I guess I'll stick with my Dual 2.3 ghz until the mactels are released.
