http://xbox.gamespy.com/xbox/microsoft-xbox/594331p1.html?fromint=1 From the article: CPU - Xenon's CPU has three 3.0 GHz PowerPC cores. Each core is capable of two instructions per cycle and has an L1 cache with 32 KB for data and 32 KB for instructions. The three cores share 1 MB of L2 cache. Alpha 2 developer kits currently have two cores instead of three. This chip could be the dual/triple core G5 we've been waiting for. If this article is true, the chip is already sampling, which means it will probably be released this year. Sounds good to me!
