Link If you haven't heard, IBM, Sony, and Toshiba have developed a new processor named Cell. It will be in the PlayStation successor, but current reports seem to show it could be a powerful computer processor. It's also a 90 nm processor. The article even says the chip could be used in other hardware. I was thinking, if IBM hasn't been producing our next line of G5 chips for our PowerMacs and PowerBooks, maybe whatever Cell turns out to be will the next line of G5 processors. It's a 90 nm chip, some advanced specs, and sounds sorta like a G5 to me. IBM has also been pretty busy manufacturing these days. They're taking care of some nVidia processors, the G5s, and rumors are out there that the next X-Box will be using a G5 chip and even Nintendo's GameCube successor will be using a G5 chip (but those are all rumors). If the G5 is really reaching all of these systems, maybe Cell is just what the next line of G5s is supposed to be? IBM could knock down a few birds with one stone, if the Cell turns out to be a G5. So, what do you guys think? Crazy, ey? In all honesty, I expect it to be nothing at all, or at least anything beneficial for Macs. But, it fits in the timeframe of updated PowerMacs and the E3 Expo, and IBM has been fairly quiet about the 970s lately.
