My guess is 3ghz will be announced at end of the summer, shipping in couple of months!

Yee-haw.

Now the questions become, what's the specs, and what's processor, and when do they ship?

Greedy, whiny, I know... man what a day... :)

2.6 Ghz now, 3 Ghz by years end......

It makes more sense to have a "quiet" update now,
the Drama at WWDC will have a greater impact
with less confusion......

If all this is coming this week I don't think I bother to watch the Keynote at WWDC2004... or can SJ have something really amazing up his sleeve like a Cube-like iMac replacement for the living room (the PowerMac 8,1 from 10.3.4) - hopefully not called an xMac...

Didn't we have a week earlier this year where Apple released something new every day. (new as in new/enhanced products HW/SW)

I'm thinking they might release the new G5s before WWDC (possible announce the 3Ghz @ WWDC), just to pave the way for the iMac G5

There is no way that Steve will annouce 3gig G5's if they release new ones tomorrow, I mean, who will buy them if you could get a 3gig just months after. It would kill sales of the Powermac.

if this is true and there is no 3ghz announcment tomorrow or at wwdc, there will be many many pissed customers and stock holders who counted on steve's promise of 3ghz within a year. dont give me that "he has till sept 22" bs. he said 3 in a year and thats what i expect.

ThinkSecret = Dead lock for me.

I know some will point to a few mistakes of theirs in the past, but I can't remember the last time they were just flat out wrong with a number like this.

WHOA! Anyone see this at the end?

"The source also pointed to the possibility of quad G5 models, but stressed that the development was unconfirmed."

i think they will reach 3 GHz by the end of summer. maybe up to 2.6 now, then by the end of summer have a 2.6, 2.8 and 3.0 maybe?

but they won't release 3.0 at WWDC if they don't tomorrow. that would be stupid. but, it would be steve keeping his word...

mark my words -- iMac G5 this summer.

I'd say a good portion of the Keynote will be about Tiger. It's a developers conference, they want to know about the OS they need to develope for as well as the hardware.

There probably will be some hardware announcements at WWDC, but nothing to consume that much time.

Hopefully we will see Dual 3GHZ by WWDC. I think we will. ;)

Won't happen - and they won't be announced there either. I think that September (isn't Paris Expo around then?) would be a likely time frame for the 3Ghz model - assuming Jobs wants to keep his 1 year prediction.

edit: After reading another handful of posts suggesting the same, I am amazed at the number of people posting who have no business sense whatsoever.
:rolleyes:

everyone here is acting greedy... 2.0 to 2.6 is a 30 percent gain... now it has taken them a long time to do that... but you dont see the P4 go from 3.4 to 4.4 ghz because that is a 30 percent gain... but anyway... no one will every satisfy people when it comes to speed.. so lets just hope they keep trying....
