G4/533 Review at XLR8YourMac
6:00 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

XLR8YourMac has published a detailed reader review of the newly announced Power Macintosh G4. The system reviewed was the mid-range system, equipped with a G4/533 processor, NVIDIA's Geforce2 MX video card, 128 MB RAM, CD-RW drive, and spacious 40 GB hard drive. Most of the benchmarks performed were focused on video card performance, but the reviewer also details other system components, such as the hard drive, RAM, CD-RW drive, system software, and CPU. Also included is a picture of the Geforce2 MX and the new motherboard.

It is important to note that this is a very preliminary review, and the user's experiences (good and bad) have yet to be verified by another source. However, initial numbers of the GeForce 2 MX in Q3A timedemos are quite encouraging, revealing that not only is this a worthy card, but the increased bus speed does seem to give gaming the "kick" we all hoped for. If any of you out there were lucky (and wealthy) enough to grab one of the new G4 systems at the Expo, we'd love to hear your feedback on Apple's latest hardware in our Forums.
