The one part that bugs me is, first of
all, the inclusion of the PowerPC parts (G3). Everything else is x86. You
might as well throw in the Alpha if you do that. Then, to say that a
266MHz G3 outperforms a Pentium III 500? That certainly doesn't follow in
real world performance.
I understand that you take this stuff from a variety of sources and
such. I'd drop the Mac stuff, unless you are comparing PowerPC chips to
PowerPC chips, or using a more reliable source than an Apple ad. Other
than that, the comparisons look pretty much in line.
Though the site is primarily focussed on PC's, specific G3's have been
included ever since the iMac brought Apple back into the mainstream focus
of computer buyers. For the sake of interest, more than anything.
We are not intending to provide speed comparisons among the full
PowerPC line at this time, as respective CPU clockspeeds can do that. In
the x86 world, the luxury of increased competition (Cyrix aside) has also
increased the complexity of having to compare one manufacturer's CPU's
with another's. The CPU Scorecard accomplishes
that rather well, we feel.
