Speed vs speed?

Hi Gang -

Sorry if this is the wrong question for this forum.

Can someone describe the parallels or differences between the pentium processors and the G4 and G5 processors. Please remember I am coming from a long tragic line of PC years and I am just curious on a comparison between the two CPU architectures.

Say a 1.25GHz PowerPC G4 (single CPU). What does that equal in performance in the Intel Windoze PC box?

If I am in the wrong forum please direct me.
And thank-you!
QUOTE Thanks

in a lot of tests its apples to oranges. but in general, the megahertz myth video helps you understand the difference in speed numbers.
