Head to Head: Windows virtual machine performance on the Mac

chanporyWith all these different options for running Windows applications on Intel Macs, we wanted to see how they compare against each other in terms of performance; so CNET Labs applied its systems testing methodology to an eight-core, 2.66GHz Mac Pro running the Mac OS X 10.4.10.[…] Thanks to chanpory for providing this nice story on Digg (more than 24Diggs).

What other users say about this:

wonderchemist: Where did they find a 8 core Mac running at 2.66 GHz? Apple store only shows 8@3.0 Ghz?

streak: Too bad the new Microsoft Virtual PC 7.0.3 wasn’t benchmarked on a PowerMac G5 for contrast. Of course it would really suck, but it would still be interesting to see just how badly it sucks.
