MacBuyersGuide reports that IBM will start full production of the PPC 970 64-bit proccessors in July. They say that IBM has confirmed this. If this is true then that means it may take quite a while longer than expected for us to see any Macs using the PPC 970 or new 750. It also talked about the relative speeds of the new proccessors. The PPC 970 will go up to 1.8 GHZ. This model should draw around 40 W. A 1 GHZ PPC 970 should draw around 15-20 W. Appartantly, the PPC 970 does not even compete with the new AMD and Intel 64-bit proccessors. And that the new Pentiums which are due to be used in PC computers this summer will be much faster per mhz/ghz than the PPC 970. Although compared to the current Pentium 4s: 1 GHZ PPC new 750=1.6 GHZ Pentium 4 1 GHZ PPC 970=2 GHZ Pentium 4 All in all MacBuyersGuide is trying to say that the new IBM proccessors will be a dissapointment, and arrive far too late for Apple to get any spotlight out of them. If the information is accurate, I happen to agree.
