Cubezone (http://www.cube-zone.com/#rumor) reports on a rumor that Powerlogix will start selling single and dual 1.4 GHz cards for the cube... and will sue 1.4GHz 7457 G$'s from Motorola.

There was a cryptic post on the never ending CPU thread over at ARStechnia about this...

Adding...

Then if you look at SNDF 2003 Dallas, Motorola is planning some discussions and sessions to teach people about the 7447/7457 in March. Don't know how that relates back to ship dates for the unit.

The schedule looks like it should be perfect for a summer refresh with the 7457 and a MWSFish 970 intro. The 970 comes out sometime in quarter 3, and Apple will need a bit of time to get it in Macs and get enough to meet demand. I would guess we'll get something in the 1.6-1.8GHz range with a 200MHz bus and more cache this summer.
