Here is a list that I have compiled of the applications optimized for use with the G4’s AltiVec subprocessor, also known as Velocity Engine. As companies ship (or are very close to shipping) G4 accelerated software, I’ll post them here.
Over time, more and more applications will be optimized for the G4 and the list should grow. However, I only have one pair of eyes — if you notice an overlooked product, let the Hardware Helper know at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your e-mail, please tell me as much as you know about the product — the company, the product name and version number, when it became or will be optimized for the G4, and what portions of the product have been optimized. I’ll then verify it, post it here, and send you a quick thank-you note.
