Dual vs Quad for Aperture
Jan 5, 2006

Has anyone been able to do a direct side by side comparison of Aperture performance on the new dual and quad G5 PowerMac's with equivelant graphics cards such as the GeForce 6600 (or the 7800). I'm looking to buy a new MAC to run Aperture and wondering if the quad is really justified.

I might buy the quad anyway just because it apparently does run CS2 much faster, and it ought to be much smoother and more responsive in multitasking different apps. However, the dual 2.0 GHz is a lot cheaper, and maybe I should just settle for that until the Intel based PowerMacs are out and supported by all the software I care about. Tough decisions....
