View Full Version : A G5?

I know its been discussed, but my current Dual 1.42 will be soon replaced by a Dual 2.7. For those of you that use lightwave I'm curious how zippy it is?

(Also G2+Fprime rocks- even on the 1.42)

I'm pretty happy with mine. OGL isn't as zippy as I'd like, even with the ATI x800 in there, but that's part of being on a Mac these days. Renders are nice and fast compared to my old Dual G4 1.4.

I once tested my dual 1.25 G4 vs. a dual 2.5 G5 with comparable RAM...I only rendered one particular scene (with reflections and radiosity) since my time with the G5 was limited. It was slightly speedier than twice as fast. :)
