Apple's sudden conversion to SMP religion last year, when the G4 wouldn't ramp above 500MHz, was quickly renounced once Motorola finally got the G4 up to 733MHz. This about-face was largely considered a good move, since Mac OS9 isn't really up to snuff with is multiprocessor support. But not all of Apple's fanatical followers have shaken off their SMP convictions just yet, and for good reason. This article pits a dual G4 box against a new, 733MHz G4 system, and the results aren't exactly what the new Apple's PR mavens want you to see.
Hmm. I need to get one of those G4 733s into Damage Labs for a little comparo versus the P4 and Athlon DDR. Hmmmm....
