    From the arstechnica site:
    Quite interesting. Anyone know if this 7455 revision has DDR signaling?

    The thread also has a mention that the 1.25GHz G4 is a 7455A processor.

    Machine

    I have a dual processor 867.

    I opened up Terminal and typed in "machine" then return.

    It output the following line "ppc7450".

    Doesn't sound like 7455 to me

    Re: Machine

    It *IS* a 7455. Trust me. DP800 and its series [733, 867, DP800] were 7450. January's DP1GHz series were first 7455s. It's still 7455 right now. Though the 7455 in 1.25 appears to be 7455A... but the question still stands... true DDR signaling?

    Edit: whoops, logic didnt match up... corrected DP800 and older to DP800 and its series

    Based on the benchmarks of the 1.25GHz DDR G4, I'd venture to say that we still do not have a full implementation of DDR memory, though a full implementation of DDR memory would provide little or no boost in most processes. I think that we are merely seeing the advantage of a 166MHz system bus, as opposed to the 133MHz bus that we saw for so long.
