Early Benchmarks: Dual 1GHz

Many Mac news outlets and readers have pointed out Barefeats' early benchmarks of the Dual 1 GHz G4 (DDR) vs Dual 1 GHz G4 (non-DDR).



Initial results appears to be identical... however, base configurations of the Dual 1GHz G4 (non-DDR) have 2MB of L3 cache vs 1MB of L3 cache on the DDR G4.



As well, others argue that the tests don't actually stress the particular systems enough to measure differences in the bus speeds. (Dennis of http://www.fractaldomains.com/)



More extensive benchmarks should appears as more systems are distributed.
