processor:
which cpu is in the sawtooth? 2.0ghz? :o

Floating point:
Sawtooth FTW!

Disk Mix:
this purple line disk mix = 321% seritek 64bit :D  seritek, "where no mac has gone before" lol

Graphics mix:
ti4600 takes the lead;)

conclusion:
ti4600 + Seritek 64bit card + cpu upgrade
why not combine these 3 upgrades in the same machine???
= super human mutant mac of the past (future?) :D

i dont understand how radeon 9000 on the 1.66mdd beats the radeon 8500..
i guess this is because of AGP 2x limitation of sawtooth!
but yet the mdd 1.25 single is AGP4x but only scores 100%?

i see all of these tests are calculated relevant in precentage to the MDD 1.25 single's score which is providing base 100% score

this benchmark app = macbench 4.0?

For the MDD there isn't 7448 @ 2.0, "only" 7447 @ 1.8 (Sonnet) and performs very similar to 7455 @ 1.66

Yes, it is. I like a lot this machine (the G4 Sawtoth) but despite the very good CPU results (thanks to the 7448@2.0), it bites the dust easily against the better  MDD architecture (AGP 4X, DDR, L3 cache, 166 Mhz bus ...)
