The Intel iMac Reviewed
8:30 AM | Evan Holt | 6 comments

A review from Eric Bangeman of Ars Technica shows that the new iMac is quite a wonderful computer. The review covers most aspects of the iMac from both a hardware and software standpoint.

It also shows that although it may run most PowerPC applications fairly well, Rosetta can't handle graphics intensive programs at a decent speed such as Photoshop (although the tests were run on the Intel iMac with only half the RAM).

On a games related note, check out page six where Unreal Tournament 2004 is benchmarked. It fairs pretty poorly, but not to worry. I e-mailed Ryan Gordon and he says that he has the Universal Binary ready, however it still needs further testing on the new iMacs before it is ready for release.
