Conclusion: The new dual-2.5GHz Power Mac G5 is a nice step up from the Power Mac G5s we've seen before. Graphics pros and media outlets that need the fastest available speed will want to upgrade now, but most users with recent-vintage G5 machines (especially dual-2.0GHz models) don't need to jump on this...
Pros: Dual G5 processors ensure plenty of horsepower for years to come. New fans and liquid cooling are quiet. Up to 8GB of memory support. The 23-inch display is bright, clear, and attractive.
Cons: No dual-drive RAID at this price. Tested configuration uses very good, but slightly older and slower ATI graphics solution. DVD burner is single format (-RW), not dual-format.
Excerpt: The silver Power Mac G5 Dual 2 GHz is Apple's latest Über-computer. The dual 64-bit G5 processors run on a blazingly fast 1,000-MHz system bus, giving the G5 performance comparable with—and sometimes better than—the other systems in our roundup.
Conclusion: We recommend the Power Mac Dual 2.7GHz for power-hungry photo, music, and video artists who need expansion space and the horsepower to get the job done. The Power Mac Dual 2.7GHz represents the pinnacle of Mac computing.
Pros: Up-to-date graphics. Quiet. Bright, brilliant 30-inch widescreen display. Supports up to 8GB of memory. Case is easy to work in for upgrades. Speedy 16X dual-layer DVD writer.
Cons: No external speakers in package. Highest-end graphics card required for 30-inch display support. Pricey with all the options. No dual-drive RAID at this price.
Conclusion: Cet ordinateur Apple haut de gamme s'adresse en priorité aux professionnels - vidéastes, graphistes et créateurs de contenu numérique. Le Power Mac G5 est performant et design sans être une bête de course.
