Actually the Intel version are faster IF your application is not running
in emulation mode. That being said, there are not a lot of applications
that are nativly supporting the Intel chip. Which is the primary reason I
want to compile GIMP.
I will say this IMac is faster then my P4 3ghz Suse Linux box at work when
I am using applications that are native.
4x faster is unrealistic, I would say maybe 1.5 - 2x's faster then the G5.
