    with a 2.8 ghz pentium 4 out there, apple needs to speed up their G4-running desktops to at leat 2 ghz...no argument about that

    but can we reach 2 ghz by sometime in 2003?

    2GHz? Bah.

    I don't believe the G4 in the Mac would ever reach 2GHz. Given Motorola's :eek: -ness, I believe late Spring 2003 would bring us Power Macs up to [dual] ~1.5 GHz with G4s. That would be the final use of the G4 in the Power Mac. Late 2003 brings PowerPC 970 1.8GHz, keeping clock rates looking linear.

    Just my thoughts. :D

    That's a good question, but I don't think that any answer here would be more than just hopeful speculation. Like you said, we all want to see it, but I doubt it will be with the G4.

    I am willing to be surpised :D

    i see the G4 going to like 2 ghz and then that is the end of it before they switch
