PowerPC :: Finding Fastest G4 Ever?

Sep 24, 2006

Ok I've looked around the net and the fastest dual G4 I see is a 1.8 GHZ upgrade to the 7447 chip that has 512KB of L2. I've seen a single 2.0GHZ g4 updrade but will we ever see a dual 2 GHZ g4? More importantly is freescale or whoever owns the chips now are going to make faster G4s for those still not willing to let go of their g4s (myself included going strong after 4 years) I would like to hold on to my dual 1.25GHZ longer but a 2HZ+ dual G4 seems promising for Final Cut Pro and Photoshop.

Apr 19, 2009

I need a new external drive for my macbook pro. I need 1.5TB of capacity and found the Seagate FreeAgent Desk. But I am not sure if I should go with the Mac version which features a firewire 800 connection. Is it that much faster? And will the usb 2.0 interface be enough for 1080p playback?

Mac Pro :: Fastest "Connection" Protocol Between Macs?

Aug 21, 2010

Looking for the fastest and best protocol for establishing a connection between my Mac Mini and Mac Pro. The Mac Pro has a bunch of drives (10 in total) connected both internally and via a RAID card. I have a Mac Mini located in my bedroom (the other side of my house from where the desktop is located) connected to my TV. The entire network is "hardwired", NOT using wireless at all. I have never been happy with the seemingly unstable connection that exists by connecting the two machine via finder (connect as). Is there a faster and more permanent connection I can make between these two machines keeping in mind they are on other sides of the house?

Hardware :: Use Router To Speed Up Connection?

Sep 30, 2009

My room is the farthest away from the router that we have in my house, and as a result, I get fairly slower connection than everyone else. Would a wireless router(if this wouldn't work what will) let me put that in my room(without plugging it in via ethernet) and show me an increase in speed?

Hardware :: Will This Work To Speed Up Network Connection

Jan 5, 2009

I've been posting quite a bit lately as to suggestions as to how to speed up my network. Whatever I do, I cannot get to my iMac to connect to my network faster than 5-10 Mbits/sec. If I step 6 inches out of the room with the iMac, I get 70-100 Mbit/sec. I've finally come to the conclusion that there is some type of interference in the room with the iMac and no matter what I try, I'm not going to be able to get good wireless network speeds in that room.

Since the room is on a different level than my wireless router, a direct wired connection from my Time Capsule is out of the question. But, what if I bought an Airport Express, put it right outside the room with the iMac and ran an ethernet cable from the Airport Express directly into my iMac? Would that have any positive effect?

OS X :: Can Use WIFI And ETHERNET To Double Connection Speed

Jun 12, 2009

I have a really crappy connection at home, about 50 ~ 60 kpbs. LOL. Cheapest AT&T DSL, $19.95. I have a wireless router hooked up right now. Is it possible to utilize my WIFI and ETHERNET all at the same time to double my connection speed? If so how? I'm running 10.5.

IMac :: Network Connection With Low Download Speed

Nov 7, 2009

I am a new Mac user. I bought a 27" iMac today to replace a dead PC. My download speeds are AWFUL on the Mac. While using the PC, my maximum download speed on a 6 mbit connection was over 850kb/sec. Now, with the mac, I can barely manage 250K/sec downloads. I am using all the same equipment and cables as before (not using the wireless, and I have it disabled), and if I plug in another PC into my router, it will get the 850+kb/sec download speeds, no problem at all. Is there a setting somewhere that I can change to get things working properly? Poor speeds occur no matter what program I am downloading from, whether it be Safari, FTP, or whatever. I just installed parallels, with windows, and I can download at my old speeds. How do I do it in native Mac mode then?

OS X :: Limiting Particular Computer Connection Speed On Network

Jul 10, 2010

My home network consists of three computers connected via a Linksys wired router. Is there any way to limit (or disable) the connection speed to a particular computer? I'd like to be able to selectively limit/disable the connection, without having to remove the ethernet connection on said computer. I can access the router status and enable/disable the connection for the entire network, but I can't seem to selectively limit/disable a particular connection.

Because i'm a web developer i was trying some bandwidth limiting with IPFW in the terminal to test how my web apps will work with a slow internet connection. After i was done i did "# sudo IPFW flush" and thought i was done�

But then i got a feeling that my internet connection was slow so i tried "sudo IPFW pipe show" to see if i forgot to flush some pipes. It gave me an error message: ipfw: getsockopt(IP_DUMMYNET_GET): No buffer space available

Hardware :: Full Coverage But Slow Connection Speed Downstairs

Jun 17, 2010

I live in a two-story apartment and my main connection is upstairs where the cable arrives and I have a time capsule to provide wireless connection. I can have connection even downstairs but in some places the level is very low so I have added a Airport Express. Now I have full coverage but the speed downstairs is very slow (perhaps less than half of the speed I have upstairs). Is there any way to tune the level of my connection? Any tool to verify there is the bottleneck?

IMac :: Finding Highest Fan-speed And Temperatures?

Sep 1, 2010

I just bought a iMac 27" i5 version with the 2-TB Hitachi HDD.

Under browsing:

ODD: 998 rpm
HDD: Always 1100 or above
CPU: 939

ODD: 46C
HDD: 57C
CPU: 43C

The only thing what bothering me is the loud HDD fan. Really annoying.

So, what for iMac have you and what are the fan-speeds and temperatures of your iMac? And of-course how did you solve these high fan-speeds? (If you did)
