The 970FX runs with 1V at 2GHZ. It reaches 12.3W at 1.4GHz either because the voltage is reduced to 0.85V or because parts of the execution units are shut off. And we don't know whether it needs higher voltages to run higher speeds as 2GHz. So I think your table is interesting but the data basis is weak
A 90nm process on a 300mm wafer that has cost a mountain of money?
Good objection. All I've seen is a label. And nowhere a marketing blurb how advanced the IBM contoller is. So I think you're right and they use the Xserve chip.
It seems the 970fx runs on 0.85V at this speed. So the question is how fast can it go without raising the voltage back to 1V.IBM uses its own system controller which might top out at 550MHz bus speed (assuming the usual DDR bus speed doubling). Some time ago I read Apples system controller could do 650MHz (maybe be at mosr ) which would fit very nicely with a 2600MHz 970fx...
That's exactly what I wish Apple would do. But don't you think they had done it already if they thought they could make money with such a product line? Now the 970 will catch up with the fastest P4 in a few days - perhaps this will change Apples mind...
A G5 is like Prozak. Look what it did with the mind of LBB. One G5 and he's writing marketing lyrics for Apple
This applies to 1GB DIMMs. 512MB sticks are now produced with up to 2022 timing.

Apple System Profiler from 10.3 gives a report of every DIMM with the speed setting (2022, 2033, 2533 or 3033 for example).
The Radeon 7000 is slightly faster than the Radeon Mac Edition (= Radeon 7200) in 2D because it's clocked a bit faster (183MHz vs 166MHz). But it lacks the Transform & Lightning unit of the R 7200 and so it's slower in 3D where T&L is used. This is from my own experience as I own both...
