Compared to Panther, the Mac OS X 10.3 system software, Tiger exhibits broad performance improvements. It's noticeably faster at booting the system and loading applications. PDF rendering and all text and graphics rendering is faster with Tiger on late-model Macs. Elsewhere, the new IBM chip could serve a PowerBook G5, but is it too little too late?
