A while back when the G4 was introduced, it was pitted against the Pentium III (or was it II? ) and the AMD whatever... anyways, the G4 was "superior" to the others in terms of performance, from what I hear. The AMD Hammer and the Intel McKinley are scheduled to be released later this year at 2GHz at the least. The G5 will probably arrive in Jan '03, but it's possible it could arrive before the Hammer or McKinley (at NY). My question is, since we don't actually know that much about this mythical G5, will it be "superior" to the offerings from AMD and Intel as the G4 back in it's debut? I personally have no clue.. I sure hope so. However, the Hammer and McKinley (moreso the Hammer) looks very impressive!
