Old Dog New Tricks
Authored by: Glide on Feb 20, '06 11:55:09AM

10.4.5 on an old Beige G3 MT/G4 500 upgrade and other usual upgraded goodies. Runs like a top. It still shocks me that a machine this old is still so capable.

In Tiger's favour there was a noticeable difference in performance between 10.3 and 10.4 on this particular rig. The main reason for me upgrading to Tiger aside from new features.

!?! You mean with all that extra stuff added in, 10.4 is FASTER than 10.3? I might have to splurge then. Will i get acceptable graphics performance w/ only 32 MB VRAM?

should run smoothly... i have a Quicksilver2002 with 32Mb ram and an iBookG4 (2005) also with 32Mb (admittedly with the 9550 graphics card) which both run tiger well.
