Hi Folks, I'm hoping someone can help me with advice. Because of the contract I am working on, I need to spend some money on a new computer between now and November. I am debating whether to buy the Dual 2.7GHz PowerMac now or wait for a possible Quad 970MP based PowerMac (that would obviously need to be out before Nov). I running mostly statistical analysis on large datasets. I could obviously wait and see until November, but in the mean time I will have to limp along with a somewhat old Linux MP system. Waiting until Nov to get nothing would be frustrating, but of course, buying now only to have a wicked-fast Quad announced in a few months would be just as frustrating. I wondering whether anyone has any insight on this decision, in particular: 1. What do you think the odds are of a 970MP PowerMac shipping between now and November. My guess was somewhat less than 50%. 2. What do you think the speed boost will be on a Quad 2.5GHz 970MP system verses the current dual 2.7GHz systems for number crunching. (It seems like the speed boost from single to dual systems was on the order of 50-80%, but I'm wondering whether you reach a point of diminishing returns going from dual to quad.) Thanks for any help you can provide.
