77.27 - 12" PowerBook G4/1.33, stock spec save for 10.3.4...

I'll be interested to see if the additional 1GB of RAM makes any difference :)

you know, if you hooked up your lacie hd, and selected it in xbench, you could probably boost your score quite a bit ;) that's how everybody does it on the xbench comparison site. that and using virtual drives.

LOL, yeah, sure that was the score. Thanks for the laugh, considering that is only a little better than my 400Mhz G3 gets. :no:

Without anything running 143

Who would run a benchmark program with 20 programs running at the same time?? LOL :rolleyes:

I'll have to try that virtual drive trick on my PowerBook, just to see how much it helps. This hard drive is killing my scores, I'm sure.

lol... it would only be for the benchmark though. the virtual drives place themselves in ram, so yea, that would be helpful if you loaded a g5 up with 8 gigs of ram and made a 5 gig "partition", but not for most of us.

for example, using one of the ram disk creator's available on mu:

Results 163.43

Disk Test 368.48

Sequential 236.00

Uncached Write 150.35 62.67 MB/sec [4K blocks]

Uncached Write 258.08 105.68 MB/sec [256K blocks]

Uncached Read 314.38 49.77 MB/sec [4K blocks]

Uncached Read 308.44 124.62 MB/sec [256K blocks]

Random 840.01

Uncached Write 2225.42 33.38 MB/sec [4K blocks]

Uncached Write 414.75 93.54 MB/sec [256K blocks]

Uncached Read 4276.50 28.23 MB/sec [4K blocks]

Uncached Read 599.67 123.41 MB/sec [256K blocks]

using a 256mb ram disk, it boosted my score 30 points (Y) but i can't really use it for much in real life, except to ease load times of small files.

How are you making ram disks on OS X? I would like to move some caches onto a ram disk with symlinks so they are removed on reboots and disk activity is reduced.
