This test is a real-world task using Iridient Developer, which is efficiently multi-threaded.

While the 3.3 GHz 8-core Mac Pro wins here, the iMac takes only 17% longer in spite of having only 4 CPU cores and one GPU, which is a disappointing performance for this very high end Mac Pro (8 CPU cores and dual GPUs!).
