How to run Classic (pre OS X) apps on Intel Macs
Authored by: schaps on May 16, '06 11:42:52AM

I am just curious how fast this emulation is on dual core Intel Macs--- I imagine it could be wicked fast, running old PPC apps faster than G4s ever did. Yes? No? Maybe?

No, unfortunately. Unlike the transition from 68k to PowerPC, the new architecture is not Wicked Fastâ„¢. Most of the performance increases seen in the new machines have little to do with the main processor, but rather with the FSB, DDR2 RAM, PCI Express, SATA, &c.

Perhaps when Conroe, Morem, &c. come out the difference will be more significant.
