Another G4 vs. Athlon
3Dhardware.net has a link on a Photoshop comparison of G4 and G3 systems against some Athlon PCs. Note the "Everyone knows that the Macs are not that hot for gaming, but they are some serious graphics workstations." sentence. That kind of journalism really makes me angry. Check it out anyway.
SharkyExtreme seems to adopt the Mac in their columns, writing about the past, the present and the future, technology and games. I mus read this one...
