iMac benchmarks request
 
I was wondering if anyone has benchmark results for iMac. 3Dmark06, Pcmark05, Company of Heroes, Crysis, etc.. I've looked on a couple of the Pc magazine websites, and none of them really have a complete benchmark of the most recent release.

Thanks!

He might mean while running Windows.

The current iMacs have the following graphics cards:
Radeon HD 2400 XT
Radeon HD 2600 Pro
GeForce 8800GS

Either way you would be better off with a real PC. Last time I checked Apple did not have Radeon HD 48xx or GeForce GTX2xx drivers hidden away in an OS update or anything and even if they did you would need a card with EFI compatible firmware(if you wanted to use OS X at all). This and the fact that the iMac uses an MXM slot mean that chances are you will be unlikely to ever upgrade the graphics card unless you pulled one from a newer iMac that used the same revision of that slot.

No overclocking that iMac either so you would be stuck with 2.4-3.06Ghz.
Only one internal HDD allowed as well.(I notice that you have two)


Your current sigrig completely wastes an iMac by the looks of it.

Nah, I don't wanna buy a mac. I just wanted to use the benchmark results to prove to a couple of my friends who are mac-junkies that my pc is a better performer.

The iMac is not really the same class as your PC.. But having said that nor is the Mac Pro because it is workstation class.
Apple has nothing in the same class as your PC really.

Beat down those MacFag zealots! Oh and by the way, a friend of mine slapped this together: Faggotree

And before you ask, I like the old Macs and not so much the new ones.

That's just pure epic.

An iMac is an all-in-one, of course a desktop that is 3-4x the size is going to be more cost efficient and powerful.

Shuttle PC. Tiny, yet can be extremely powerfull. Take a look at their tiny little X48 chipset beast! (Crossfire support....but sadly its only got a 450w PSU. Still, a pair of 3850's maybe?) Shuttle Global - Home

LOL your friends are delirious. I'm not a Mac hater but only a fanboy could excliam an iMac is more powerful then your PC. Best one is 3.06GHz with an 8800GS, lololololol. You don't need benchmarks to see the difference.
