i was reading this in PC Mag in a Processor Time Line under 3Q of 2003:

"Motorola and IBM are going to each announce their own new chip architectures, each rumored to be the next Apple CPU (G5)."

i thought it was going to be a lot longer than this. I'm pretty exited myself, I think I'm going to work all summer to get some good money and wait for this sucker to get realeased!

What do you guys think it'll be like?:confused: :D

This is old news. As far as I know, Motorola is out and IBM is in. Yes, the Power 970, IBM's 64-bit chip, will be available in the 3rd quarter of this year. Check the links. ---> Click here and here. ;)

Maybe IBM might label the 970 as the G5, even though Moto's G5 Will never come because they caned it before it went into mass production because of _________ problems.
:rolleyes: Stupid Moto, we could of already HAD G5's by now if they followed through with there planes, we might not have been so far back wating for IBM's 970.
Ech. :mad:
