I heard that if IBM's G5 processor is accepted (which apparently is closer to completion than Motorola's), it will be a "pentium oriented" design. It would have a 64bit pipeline instead of the current 128bit design with the velocity engine. It would reach high speeds, but one of mac's strongpoints is the ability to do more in one cycle, not pump out necessarily big "Gigga-hertz" ********. Other sources have claimed that the G5 would have a 128bit pipeline and reach the same speeds, but I did not catch who's design it would be based on (IBM or Motorola). I personally feel that if the first rumor is true, Apple would be taking a big step in the wrong direction (to the dark side of the Pentium 4 design). Any confirmations or refutes (I hope to have more of the latter)?
