oh right. soz i miss understood the thread.
As for the G5s "feeling" faster, are you referring to the operating system itself or applications?
That movie is not correct. I remember when this first came out. I have the same G5 iMac and it boots in less than half the time of that one. Its not as fast as the Intel, but its nowhere near as slow. The G5 was either not properly shut down, or had some other problem, possibly software update, or something else before it was shut down.
Giulio, guilio, giulio... Buddy of mine, remember the title of the thread: G5 vs Intel.
Kiddin' ya. I would sure hope so that an Intel-based Mac is faster than a G4 iMac! It would mean all these years for nuthin'.
That of course is Booting speed and NOT CPU speed in getting work done, although the Intel Mini does get real work done faster than my 2.1Ghz iMac G5. Handbrake doing the exact same video takes 2.5 hours on the iMac G5 with CPU set to Max Performance and less than 55 minutes on Core Duo Mini. There is no doubt using Universal applications on both systems that the Intel Macs are faster than the G5's overall at least with every app I have compared over here.
