Is there any benchmarks of the full capabilities of the XBOX 360 compared to a PC to get a perspective of the computing power of the device?

More about : benchmarking xbox 360

To do that, you'd need the same software, using the exact same settings. To my knowledge no such animal exists.

Wasnt the CPU based upon the MAC?

Could it be possible for someone to install the CPU in a MAC and benchmark the CPU?

Could it be possible someone with the DEV kit or when the 360 gets modded to benchmark it then?

The original XBOX if modded can run Linux from there I would imaging benchmarks could be run from the unit or would we have to wait until the 360 is modded for this answer?

No there aren't any benchmarks, see post above for reason. No you couldn't put it in a mac because the xb360's CPU isn't a standard PowerPC cpu. Its the same with the original xbox. It had, I believe, a modified PIII running at 733mHz and there would be no point trying to stick it on a PC motherboard.

There is a mod to replace the Xbox cpu with a 1433 mhz one but it messes up a lot of games.

Ok so I understand it. The power PC chip in the xbox cannot be removed to test performance.

Then I guess we will have to wait for a 360 mod but even then they wont have all the right opcodes to test properly.

And here we are, right back where I left. To my knowledge no such animal exists.

The Xbox 360 has a triple core processor. You cant recreate that without spending a decent amount of money. Like slvr_phoenix says, we just cant do it without throwing down a few thousand dollars.
