Apple responds to benchmarking criticisms

— 5:50 AM on June 25, 2003

Slashdot has secured a response to recent allegations of cooked benchmark results in the G5 launch from Apple's own vice president of hardware product marketing. The response rationalizes a number of issues that critics have had with Apple's performance presentation for the G5, but many concerns remain unanswered.

And still, we have no idea how an Athlon or Opteron would perform under Apple or VeriTest's benchmark conditions. That omission will only drive the curious to the real world for comparative performance numbers for AMD's processors. It would appear that the real world isn't as stacked in the G5's favor as Apple's deck.
