Performance Inquiry: System Controller Throughput on MDD G4s

I’ve come across this little tidbit. The new MDD g4’s claim to give 4.8GBPS throughput. I would like to know how this is possible as the system controller is exactly the same as on the previous model of G4. The old controller is limited to 1GBPS. So i ran a test on memory throughput on some apps and found absolutely no difference in throughput in MBPS. Can you say jipped??

Ed: Since there’s already been a case of the press jumping on a “no speed improvement” story, only to later determine performance had improved, I’m going to leave this to in-the-know readers to debate. -PK
