I just read this article in MacOSrumors, here is a piece of it: ------------ In Steve-speak, we're led to believe that this means: we're not going to trample all over the performance issue in one fell swoop, but we're going to continue to come out with systems that widen the gap in certain areas, and catch up in others. In short, the G4 has legs and will move to 1.6GHz+ in the year ahead, along with 400-500MHz high-bandwidth memory. But for those seeking the G5....expect to wait a little longer. It may also not be the processor we are expecting....unless of course Apple passes off the new high-bandwidth G4s as "G5"s -------------- I am not usre what is going on, but answer me this: Of course the G4 has legs, it is now in the iMac, so it needs room to move, and doesn't Apple have to show it's Pro consumers that it has something that is a lot better then it's consumer line? I mean, it's also pychology: Why would a pro consumer buy a Powermac G4 1ghz (with monitor)? when he can get a G4 800mhz for almost half the price? I personally think in this economy that Apple has to play ball soon with this G5,, or we might have problems. One more thing: Apple always talks about the megahertz myth, that is all well and good, and a full believer of this myth, but I think that myth is dying. Once AMD comes out with thier Hammer chip, and Intel with thier McKinley: will the G4 be able to stand up to those chips? It still has Alitvec, but I don't really think so. So, Apple has to put a G5 in a machine: either MWNY 2002, or at least in MWSF 2003 for it to still stay competitive. What do you guys think?
