According to this, the iMac G5 is only 16% faster than the previous model. Not much of a breakthrough in my eyes.

Anyway, what's the deal whit that FPS hype? The human eye's reaction being quite slow, it doesn't see a difference between 50 fps and 100 fps... only when you turn on a FPS-counter in your game, you see the value...so who cares?!?

Can anyone help me here? What is the difference between a G5 1.6 ghz computer and a Pentium 4 2.80ghz or more?
Whats is better a Intel PC or a macintosh imac?
