Now this is funny.... benchmark comparing a mac from 1986 running System 6 against a brand new XPSP2 Dual Core AMD machine. You Won't Believe Who Wins.
3) All of the tests were performed with a generally recommended amount of RAM for the OS configuration. For the Mac Plus, that was 4MB. For the AMD that was 1GB.
Even benchmarks like the 'boot to desktop' had me giggling... wow, the more things change the more they suck eh? Course, they didn't have quake back then, either.
