Benchmarks Mac vs PC

Dear Rooters

Finally I have received my new MacBook Pro, so I decided to do some benchmarks:

  • I have tested how long it takes to compile the newest root version 5.15/01.
  • I have tested the rootmarks estimated by demos.C

Here are the results for the following laptops:
1, MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.33 GHz with Mac OS X 10.4.8:
Compilation time: 23 min
Estimated rootmarks: 954.43

2, PowerBook Titanium G4 550 MHz with Mac OS X 10.4.4 (five years old!):
Compilation time: 170 min
Estimated rootmarks: 142.93

1, HP Laptop Compaq nx6110 Celeron M 1.4 GHz with Fedora Core 4:
Compilation time: 33 min
Estimated rootmarks: 523.05

I wish you all
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
