French Translation Req: x86

Can someone please provide a non-automated translation of the following?

http://www.macbidouille.com/niouzcon...002-11-21#3925

Encore des rumeurs !!! - Lionel - 19:51:08
Je viens encore de recevoir des rumeurs qui vont vous plaire.
Bien évidement, la source est anonyme, mais elle a une excellente fiabilité:

- Apple va passer au CPU 64bits dans les mois a venir.
- Le processeur sortira plus probablement de chez AMD que de chez IBM, car le premier a une capacité de production bien supérieure.

Il faut dire que pour PC, le processeur grand public d'AMD 64 Bits est presque prêt.
Il a aussi le grand mérite d'être compatible avec les bus 32 Bits.

Alors un Processeur X86 dans un mac ou un PPC chez AMD ?


Et pour finir, Autodesk et Lotus Server sont en train de developper leurs logiciels pour macos X.

Still rumours!!! - Lionel - 19:51:08 I still have just received
rumours which you will like. Well cavity, the source is anonymous, but
it has an excellent reliability:

- APPLE will pass to the CPU 64bits in the months has to come. - the
processor will more probably leave to AMD than from IBM, because the
first has a quite higher output.

It should be said that for PC, the general public processor of AMD 64
Bits is almost ready. It has also the great merit to be compatible
with the buses 32 Bits.

Then a X86 Processor in mac or a PPC at AMD?


And to finish, Autodesk and Lotus Server are developing their software
for macos X.

---------------------------------------------

Translated via Sherlock, but it's quite accurate (albeit, bad english...)

[edit: seems like one important line is badly translated. It says AMD wil probably provide the chips because of higher production capacity. Also, the source is not sure wether AMD will produce a x86 chip or a PPC chip, but it will be a 64 bit chip, highly certain to be compatible with the 32 bit bus.]

Exclamation Here we go again!

Just when you thought the whole x86 rumors were going to be disproven after Comdex... Anyways, how reliable is Macbidouille? Just my $.02, but I think Apple should go with the better processor in terms of speed and long-term upgradeability. If that ends up being AMD, well then great. If it's IBM, great. I'm pretty sure that the folks at Apple are making the best decisions on the matter, and they're much better informed than any of us could hope to be.

From what we've seen, MacBidouille is reliable. They predicted the PowerMac G4 MDD and had pictures of it...

Human brain automated translation

More romors!!! (...)
I have just received some rumors you're not gonna like.
Of course they're from an anonyme yet reliable source:

- Apple will start using 64 bit CPU during the following months
- The processor will probably be made by AMD rather than by IBM, the later having a much higher production capacity.

I should be noted that AMD's 64 bit proc for PCs is almost ready.
The processor has the advantage of being compatible with 32 bit busses.

So an x86 proc in a Mac or a PPC by AMD?

(...)



I personnaly don't give a ****** on who makes the processor, as long as it's backward compatible with software...

I assume it's supposed to read "the former having a much higher production capactity"?

[nitpick] Actually, it says: "because the former has a much higher production capacity." [/nitpick]

This is not important, but isn't it «rumors you will like»?

And doesn't the article state that AMD will produce the chips because AMD got higher production capacity (not IBM).
Or does my french suck that bad???

[edit: pianojoe cleared that last bit up...]
