X-Plane On a G5 Report
8:44 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

IMG forumgoer loneAzdgari has put up a post detailing a report from a recent newsletter mailing by Austin Meyer, creator of X-Plane. Apparently, Meyer was able to test out X-Plane on a G5 and has reported a marked increase in performance:

Some people say it is not the fastest, but they are grasping at straws based on whatever statistics they can find... but I have run X-Plane on it and I have seen that for X-Plane, it is the fastest. 120 fps on a NON-OPTIMIZED copy of X-Plane. Optimizing hops us up 25% from that.
He also adds some general impressions of the G5, remarking on its overall construction as well as its speed capabilities. Those interested in reading about his observations can find the posting in IMG's forums.

X-Plane gets 120fps on G5, says Austin
