http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=20146 That doesn't directly relate to any new PoweMac in Q1, but it got me thinking. I imagine the ATi R500 graphics card would use PCI Express. Xbox 2's coming sometime next year or the year after that, so it's more logical than AGP. PCI Express-slots for PMs? And since a new motherboard is needed, wouldn't a faster processor be in place? Xbox 2 has been rumored to sport three 3.5 GHz PowerPC-processors. This all are just thoughts and speculation. I'm not sure at all will a new PM have PCI Express and some 3-3.5 GHz processor in Q1. EDIT: Actually scrap that about PS3's specs. I didn't realize the piece of news is two years old, so I don't consider it very reliable anymore. However, since the dev kits probably will have the same processors as the actual Xbox-console, I'm guessing we could see a speed bump up to 3.5 GHz, given that whether or not the Xbox will use the same PowerPC-chip as the G5's that is. Since the speed of the processor isn't known, I bet it's higher than current line's 2.5 GHz.
