Even with me being labeled a Mac Zealot, I admit that the G5 is indeed slower than the FX-51. While the margin is slim, the ability of a single proc 51-FX to beat a dual proc G5 in several test and benchmarks shows that Apple must work harder to perfect its chip.

this really bugs tha hell out of me. you cannot compare an apple CPU to a pc CPU. i mean really, you can't use the CPU in a pc and vica versa so why try to compare? MAC have screwed themselves; they have made a product that is proprietary, the MAC operating system and it's hardware is made by apple i beleive....

what the hell are they thinking? eventually they will need to realize that they need to stick with one thing and focus on it. they will not be competitive if they keep this up.
