Here's an article I found this morning. Basically this guy says that Apple
ran the Intel chips with HyperThreading (a technology that makes one
processor act like two) turned off:

I also found this link, which I think even some Mac die-hards will like:

(please note: there are a few 'colorful metaphors' in this clip, so be

Subject: G5 speed tests rigged?

Having read the articles, it seems obvious to me that Apple
"gamed" the G5 speed tests that are posted on their web page
<> .  Quite simply, they crippled the
Intel-based computers they were testing against slightly in order
to slow them down a bit - it's admitted in the fine print apparently
if you read the pdfs describing the benchmark tests.  Is it then, the
"world's fastest personal computer?" .  As always, it depends on
what kind of task you're going to do with it....
