it would be interesting to see the benches, almost sounds like an intel rig...

thanks for your time and effort!

Ok, you have to point me in the proper direction in regards to applications etc. to test :)

What would be meaningful to you guys?

It is basically just a glorified PC but with the great engineering and design by Apple.

This thing is absolutely gorgeous inside.

What size chip did you get for your processors. I have a mac book pro. 65 thickness xeon dual core 2.6. Try http://www.xbench.com/. I pretty much googled it and found it in a second. I'll post mine also.

Yeah maybe there should be an XBench thread in this section...post mine here for now.

Mac Pro
Dual Core Xeon 5150 2.66Ghz x 2
NV 7300GT

Will run later it on a few other Macs around the office for comparison's sake.

Will run the Xbench and post results.

How does the mac pro have 1600 FSB?

Easy, it uses a quad-pumped 400Mhz Front Side Bus.

Easy, it uses a quad-pumped 400Mhz Front Side Bus.

It has dual independent FSB's ...

So kinda like 8x 400Mhz...
