They are both RISC orientated SPARC is faster and more powerfull than the g4 but id hate to admit it but the g4 beats the amd and intels too not the fastest but RISC is a superior design.

IBM RULES !!! Wait doesnt IBM make supercomputers smarter then tom? Well i would 1000 -450mhz PowerPC in a beowulf cluster any day.

G4 has a brilliant architecture in terms of the power consumption and the heat dissapation (I suppose both are related)

On some models you dont even need a passive heatsink let alone a fan.

Its streaming SIMD technology is way ahead of AMD and intel processors.


About Supercomputers... Do cray still make supercomputers, they use to make the best ones

Unix not linux , linux is garbage unix is a real operating sytems and in some respects better than windows 2k and other not i still like the GUI in win2k versus the command line promt of unix but hey they do what there were ment to do be rock solid and dependable.

No they arnt silly dilly microsoft uses win2k advanced and database on em they even say so on there site. on and unix is really really hard to hack if you know how to set it up i think they maybe at the point 2k is at now, almost impossible to hack .

the g4 is a 128 bit processor, apple leaped past the 64 bit stage

the g4 is a 32bit processor. the 128bits has to do with the memeory interface or something.

I read something about NEC and cray teaming up for selling supercomputers in the US. Dont know about the rest of the world. As for NEC, didnt they buy packard bell?

A mime is a great thing to waste! :lol:

the P4 has a higher spec mark their either ultra spark 3 or
G4 and anything out there ..

the spark just got recalled and delayed because of a terrible cache error on smp which was causing server to crash too
