IMG has taken an in-depth look at Apple's low end tower, the Power Mac G4/Dual 867. Senior Editor Andy Largent covers the dual 867's gaming abilities in detail, with comparisons of ATI's Radeon 9000 Pro and NVIDIA's GeForce4 MX and GeForce4 Titanium. The review also contains benchmarks from Quake 3, Unreal Tournament, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and Elite Force, as well as FSAA screenshots from Jedi Knight 2. Here's what Largent had to say about Apple's latest tower:

Now applications usually open in one bounce, I can run iTunes while playing games on a 21" monitor, and I have yet to experience a hitch. While the review will focus mostly on game performance in a variety of scenarios, let me just say that there's nothing the 867DP shouldn't be able to handle in most non-gaming situations.
