Xbench seems to heavily weigh the Altivec stuff. I ran tests without the CPU part on my Dual 533 G4 and my Hackintosh. The numbers seem much more in line with how each of the systems feel to me.

Yep, this poster is correct. There is a very specific Altivec test that is run on xbench. It is an invalid test to compare ppc and x86. Trust me, a Mini is destroyed by any dev kit class machine most of the time.
