I just replaced my iMac G3 400mhz (1 gig of ram) with an eMac G4 700mhz (768MB of ram).
The eMac felt slower in all uses than my iMac G3. Including scrolling through eBay, opening and closing windows etc. So I went to find benchmarks on the 'net. I found XBench 1.3. I downloaded it and ran the test. After the test is finished you upload the test (including your macs specs to the website).
You than can compare it with other macs on the website. It showed exactly what I was feeling. That it was half as slow as my G3. I compared it to one on the site and also compared it to another eMac G4 700mhz and it still showed all benchmarks were half slower.
How can this be? What would be causing this.
I think I used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone my iMac G3 to the hard drive of the eMac. Is this the reason. The ROM file? My eMac thinks it is an iMac G3?
Anyone have any ideas?
