While this article is a couple of days old, I had not read it, and I'm sure that many here have not as well. Thanks for the heads up AmigaPapst.

Perhaps this means that IBM is now taking the PPC thing more seriously

Takes a great deal of time and expense to get to this point Helgis. These are IBM products that have been in the "pipeline" for sometime.

I read another newsrelease somewhere regarding these same products. IBM now has a higher end G5 made for notebook use. Its not up to the speed Apple wanted, but will be interesting to see if the new chips go into Apple notebooks for the last time.

@Interersting

I see your point. Sounds correct one then. Still impressive but pricey yes...

I thought that Freescale was the sole supplier for Apple (at least for desktops)? If that is true then whatever Apple is doing could hardly influence IBM with their roadmap past, present or future?

confusing huh? your thinking of G4's


maybe this will help:
Quote:
Likewise, it's impossible to compare processor performance, especially processors using different architectures, without independent testing. But the power-consumption figures of the new 970FX chips would allow Apple to design a G5-based notebook that would probably outperform the company's current crop of G4-based IBooks and PowerBooks

================
This I also found very telling in the Apple/IBM saga.

Quote:
IBM had said little publicly about its PowerPC road map during the
last several weeks of speculation, then confirmation, that Apple would make the historic switch away from the PowerPC architecture in favor of Intel's x86 architecture starting in 2006. IBM and Apple have had a rocky partnership since IBM became the exclusive supplier of the G5 processors. Manufacturing problems at IBM caused a delay in shipments of the G5 chips last year, and power-consumption issues forced Apple to use liquid cooling in a high-end Power Mac and hold back on launching a G5 PowerBook or IBook.

Hi Interesting,

I can sadly, and yet gleefully say, I'm sure that the amount of G5's available would be MORE than enough for us (hint, hint!!!!)

Releasing a low cost motherboard with the processor release would be nice...
