Apple Mac Pro is crowned the fastest "PC" in the UKPC Pro:
The quad-core Apple Mac Pro has set new records in PC Pro's benchmarks, in the UK's first independent speed test of the latest Intel-based Mac.Hey, that's great. The thing is, the Mac Pro is a workstation, and not a PC. And let's be serious here: Pentium D-based computers are a joke. Not only are they dual-core, not quad-core, but they're also two generations behind the current Core 2 Duo-based PCs out now and are woefully outdated architecturally. In short, this rating is sort of bogus.
All that said, I'm sure it's smoking fast. And God knows I want one. Who wouldn't? [ Posted at 12:16 PM | Permalink ]
