I notice they try to compare Ativec to MMX! That seems kinda outlandish to me....... MMX is a bunch of code that's *supposed* to make multimedia faster, but doesn't mean crap if you have a 3d accelerator. Altivec is a whole new chip that bumps the data bus on the G4 up to something like 128bit, at least that's what I remember from the data sheets I read when it first was released.
