Yep, I'll say it because I don't care enough to be completely and utterly wrong. The Sahara G3 supports a 200MHz system bus, and 400MHz DDR memory. If the Sahara could top 1GHz, Apple should use it in their pro line. With its 512K L2 cache, SOI, and .13 micron manufacturing technique, it's ideal for a low-heat, pretty darned quick machine. Now, comes the whine of Apple's commitment to Altivec. Well, let me just say that Altivec is terrible at tasks that are not optimized for it. The Sahara would be the G4 in most any OS 9 application, and does pretty well as it stands in OS X. However, the G3 has a bit of a bottleneck that it can easily overcome. The iBook has a 100MHz system bus, the PowerBook has a 133Mhz system bus, and yet, the iBook does very well in benchmarks. So, if a G3 were coupled with a 200MHz bus and 400MHz DDR memory, I could see where it would crush our current G4s at the same clock speed.
