Apple leaks G5 specs - Page 16

post #601 of 1072
What speeds are other 64bit Processors running at now?
post #602 of 1072
I don't know what all the fuss is about.
If anything this leak, if true has caused more interest and promotion for Apple than if it would have if first released on Monday.

Remember promotion is good, and the more you get the more interest in your product.
This could actiually be a blessing in disguise.

I recall an article on the register a few days ago stating that the 64bit opteron due for fall release has an initial speed of 1.8Ghz.

Hasn't got my ADSL up and running at home yet, so I can't be as UTD as I wan't to be. Just logged in from my parents now to check if there was any news, and I have to say I'm blown away.

BTW has anybody woken LBB up yet???

Have the Admins and Kasper Jade given any clue as to these specs being the same they had from their source?

So if we have what could conceivably be the fastest 64bit processor shipping, why are all these stupid journalists saying it's a stepping stone to eventually being on Intel processors?

Apple will blow Intel out if these specs are true and I think they are 99% possibly that!

Incredible! Followed this thread really soon after this was discovered last night. Finally went to bed when the thread was like 7 pages and now it is 16! Anyways, I am glad to see Slashdot picked up on this. As mentioned before, I think this is generating a TON of "free" advertising for Apple....

Nope, this is probably as wild as it'll ever get IMHO.

You picked the best possible time to join in the fun. Prepare to be underwelmed as things get back to normal on Monday, Temp. Insanity gets shut down and the usual:

"When is the iPhone coming?",

"CONFIRMED: iTablet seen by some flunky, forkliftdriving, Taiwanese making plastic right now.",

"kormac666: part 2 coming: Good topic for MWSF will be QT 8.66 mpeg-8"

threads start back up in FH.

For now though: WOW

Well I will have to say this. There are less knuckle headed trolls around these days saying :

" This couldn't be true. Apple will never catch up to a PC. How silly. "

From what I've read around the web I have a feeling this is the real deal.
Monday is going to be really interesting. I think it could be that Apple's days of PC hardware leaving a Powermac looking really underpowered are over!

It also means the days of looking at my computer ( a G4 ) as old Apple technology that they used to make have returned.


VIVA LA POWERMAC G5!

After all this time it feels like a dream.

Of course they have the same stupid analysts predicting that this is just a temporary thing before moving to Intel because the IBM processor is "so far behind" Intel in terms of speed. Somebody shoot the bugger and put him out of his misery.

Yeah-- where do these analysts come from? Do they even research anything?

Quote:
Some say the move to IBM may only be an interim step, with Apple's real future stemming from porting its operating system to Intel-based chips. Bear Stearns' Neff, among others, has called on Apple to make such a move.

IDC analyst Roger Kay said that, although the move to IBM offers benefits, it does not allow Apple to control its own destiny. Apple is still "dependent on IBM to keep moving the Power chip forward. You wonder how much stomach IBM has for that, given the size of Apple's market and whatever IBM is doing" with that chip.

"...it does not allow Apple to control its own destiny." And going with Intel is better how...?

IBM has it's own agenda with the 970, and Apple benefits. IBM also has a really expensive fab that needs to make parts. Heck, it's making stuff for AMD. I better stop-- to much rich Bavarian food has had a bad effect on my blood pressure.

Can't wait for Monday's headlines:

"New PowerMacs unveiled..."

"Apple enthusiast brakes his neck trying to perform unbelievable stunt of sucking his own..."
