    Isn't the G5 going to be put on POWER5?

    its on POWER4 at the moment isn't it?

    Given the significant changes in architecture, I'd say when we are using POWER5 it will probably be called G6 to us.

    Am I the only one who remembers that the next chip in the line for Apple is being simultaneously designed with the Power5? If that's true, and the Power5s are about to ship... I'm about to get it from the people who whine about IBM

    We could very well see the 980 as a replacement for the 970 at WWDC, if this is true:
    The first i5 520 and 570 products will be generally available June 11, sources said.

    Then, in the third quarter, IBM is expected to introduce a new midrange model for cost-conscious buyers, the i5 550, with as many as four processors. Also at that time, the stacking of four-processor modules used in the i5 570 will extend that system to a 16-processor size.


    When is WWDC again?

    28th of June till 2nd July

    That could be true, I just feel that the 970 is still new and that I can't see it being replace yet, however it is possible :)

    Ahh thatwendigo, your optimism is always refreshing, especially in your ongoing counter-DHM crusade, but this time I think you have stretched too far.

    My .02c?

    Dual 3.0, 2.6 & 2.2 models will be announced at WWDC, 2.2 and 2.6 shipping straight away, 3.0 not actually arriving until 3 months later, all still 970's.

    Oh and a G5 iMac or something infinitely cooler to replace it (as the 'and one more thing…')


    ;)
