And to what I'm sure will be no one's surprise, the G5 got its rear end handed to it in pretty much everything except QuickTime encoding (oooooooh, scary ).

Edit: I found the mag, but unfortunately I have to go to work now. As soon as I can, I'll post Max PC's findings.
Fine, I'll post TechTVs Radeon 9700 Pro scores as well. They aren't that much better than the Geforce's.

ATI Radeon 9700 pro

UT 2003 Demo Flyby

116.7 - 1024 x 768 No AA
116.7 - 1024 x 768 4X AA
81.5 - 1280 x 1024 No AA
63.2 - 1280 x 1024 4x AA
56.2 - 1600 x 1200 No AA
39.6 - 1600 x 1200 4x AA


It's still a 30-40 FPS difference between the Mac (@ 1920 x 1200) and PC (@ 1600 x 1200).
