powerpc fan group wants to know how fast your legacy mac's graphics card is.

There are people out there just like you and, thanks to the internet, it’s not very hard to find them. Case in point is the PowerPC Mac and the folks that love Apple’s abandoned processor platform. In fact, there is group so dedicated that they want to compare PPC Mac graphics card performance, really.

Fansite Mac PowerPC has put out a call to legacy Mac lovers to benchmark their aging gracefully computers and share the results with the community:

Download OpenMark 1.60 and launch the app. Once it’s on, you go to the OpenMark menu bar and choose “Run Benchmark”. After that, you just wait for a few minutes and this app will test the raw speed of the video card, drawing a variable number of triangles and generating a report with the machine score. Feel free to share your score with us!

Well, don’t just sit there — go forth, benchmark and be sure to share your results…
