|How I tested:|
All tests were run on a Apple 8500 PowerMac with a 200mhz CPU (50mhz bus speed). This speed was chosen due to it being a common one for graphics designers (a PowerLogix Pro CPU card was used in the 8500 - which made setting the cpu and bus speeds very easy). The 8500 has a 1 meg PowerLogix L2 cache and 128 megs of 60ns TI memory purchased from MacGurus. The system has a 4x Apple CDrom and two 2gig hard disks, the stock Apple/Seagate and a Seagate ST32550N Barracuda. Both disks are partitioned into two volumes.
Disk cache was set to 512k and Virtual memory was not enabled.
The Following applications were used during the test:
