PC thrashes Mac in Adobe rendering test

Apple, IBM better get a move on with new chips

A PAGE ON the Adobe web site makes odious comparisons between the fastest Mac in town last year and a Dell 3.06GHz Pentium 4.

So Apple had better get its skates on and kick IBM up the butt for that Power PC chip that Big Blue's messing around with.

We noted the page from the Ace's Hardware forum.

The pictures certainly seem to show that the dreaded Dell whopps the dual 1GHz G4 thoroughly. Of course, it's a much higher frequency speed. But do megahertz matter any more? They don't seem to quite as much, even to La Intella...

While the text says it's a Dell 2.53GHz P4 workstation, the charts show a 3.06GHz P4 versus a 1.25GHz dual G4. Shorely shome mishtake?
