At PowerPC G4 450 SpeedX calculates CPU performance equaly 440 mips
I asked some people with macs to submit some times:
Each run was done with 10 billion operations.
G4 933: 14.2 seconds, 704.2 MIPS
G3 400: 33.67 seconds, 297 MIPS
G3 400 imac DV: 40 seconds, 250 MIPS
PowerBook 867: 38.83 seconds, 257.5 MIPS
G4 800: 17.13 seconds, 583.7 MIPS
Now I know that there are few, if any (possibly the exception of Stuffit) applications that show my PearPC/OSX system as performing at the level of a 400MHz G3.
So perhaps SpeedX is a convenient way to judge speed [i:7c4b498837]within PearPC builds[/i:7c4b498837], but not a good way to judge useful speed in comparison with actual macs. I am certainly not running OSX as well as a G3 400.
