Let1kWindowsBloom: check the cholesterol of your Mac.

(1/6) > >>

MacTron:
Let1kWindowsBloom is one of my favourites test for Mac Os, because it check the real and raw speed of your computer and the overall responsiveness,this is an easy way to see how an excessive amount system extensions and control panels damage our system performance -cholesterol :) -.
Those are some results:

iMac G4 @700Mhz 1024*468 @24bits
6.86 sec

G4 MDD S@1.5Ghz Ti4600 1680*1050 @24bits
1.81 sec

Sawtoth 7448@2.0Ghz Radeon 8500 1920*1080 @24bits
1.51 sec

Syntho:
I'm getting 15 seconds on my Sonnet 300/200/1M on my 9600.

It seems from your graphics that the BEST OS9 machine is the 100 MHz bus Sawtooth@2000. Even having 100MHz bus.
It could be fun to make same test with reversed graphics cards, I mean the 8500 on the MDD@1.5 and the "modern" Ti on the Sawtooth...Maybe the AGPx2 and ADC type AGP do not let you reverse that to test. Zen @PowerPCLiberation use GeForce 6200 on Sawtooth but on Tiger/Leopard/Debian

It went down to 11 seconds when I switched the colors from Thousands to 256.

Well... not really. The bus is overclocked to 120 Mhz. It has a DIP switch. It even work at 133 Mhz, but it gives me problems when OpenGL is used ?

I've never really used it but for speed test. LOL

I always told the same: despite the test results, it is way better a MDD. especially the 1.25 single, overclocked to 1.50.

I've done this swap two years ago. The Ti4600 on the AGPx2 Sawtooth is a lost of time and money. And the 8500 on the MDD is indistinguishable from a stok 9000 Pro.
