And very significant, all-around graphics performance increases were benchmarked in the Mavericks Developer Preview build vs. 10.8.4:

AFAIK the benchmarks were done on a non-Apple x86 peecee with an nVidia GPU, but prolly peecee users with ATi GPUs also get a boost by upgrading to Mavericks.

It's a shame those new performance-related features won't be on the Cube, specially App Nap. (Other features like time coalescing would be a disaster on the Cube due to the bus bottleneck). I wonder if it (App Nap) is the kind of thing that could be implemented with a third party hack. It reduces I/O and processor usage both known bottlenecks of the Cube (slow ATA/66 and 100Mhz bus). Compressed memory will be fine too, and we know it can be done it's the same thing that RAM Doubler did in the early 90s.

People at this forum have pushed the hardware on the original Cube to its limit, maybe now it's time for software.

Ram Doubler! Boy, that brings back memories. smile.gif
I was cleaning out old computer stuff and ran across my old RD floppies.
They went in the trash, along with all that era's other great software.

Does compressed memory really work? all the overhead is going to slow things down terribly.

In Mavericks, yes, it works flawlessly. My iMac has "only" 4GB of RAM, so when I opened Aperture (50,000+ photos), it slowed down the computer a lot. Sometimes the music in iTunes stopped playing or didn't responded immediately to keyboard commands. With Mavericks, it works just fine.
