i would say those are very rough comparison.
It is tough to say that one is faster than the other. The only way to really compare between 2 processors is to run a uniform benchmark program, which i dont think there isnt any (currently), or is it?
Which is why I said [quote:dee61bacdb]
from a useability perspective NOT a bench mark perspective.
[/quote:dee61bacdb] After all benchmarks are great for getting numbers, but as people know this isnt everything... After all Photoshop has been tuned for altivec very well, so i will probably run much better on a mac than a PC. As for using GHz it was more of a way of identifying the chips rather than anything else. And as you said... they are very rough comparisons.. After all you are going to be running software on your computer not a benchmark. And different software can run better on a "slower" (benchmarked) machine because of different optimizations... The comparisons were from actual machines that I have used (or own) whil doing video editing, and which feel more responsive whil being used for things like browsing the internet with 20 to 50 tabs open in various web browsers..
