I think the "new powerbook" thread started almost a year ago is the reigning thread king.

I'm going to start feeding this one if a release doesn't happen soon, though!

i think this is already in the top 5 (or something like that) longest threads ever at AI. i imagine the longest one after this will either be for pbook g5's or a "confirmed rev. b g5's" thread to discuss the new update.

2004-02-05 - The PPC 975


The PPC 975 will inaugurate technology Simultaneous Multi-threading from IBM. The first results obtained by APPLE are impressive without SMT, a PPC 975 at 3 GHz gives performances SpecInt 1350 and SpecFP of 1479. Activated SMT, one passes to SpecInt of 1650 and one SPecFP of 1750. It is the double of a PPC 970 at 2 GHz. The chip which has 98 million transistors, consumes 71W at 3Ghz, and 86W at 3,4Ghz. Mac G5 975 will be can be announced with the WWDC and put on sale a few months later.

If this rumor is true (I somewhat have doubts for the timing, at least), then there will be no new Power Macs until WWDC .

Can't believe that quote! Surely seems to good to be true?

However if it is even partially correct, Apple will string out a few more G4 updates and then blow the whole shebang clean from the water... Hmmmm. Exciting prospect!

hrrmmmm..... smells like the evil clone of MOSR IMHO. If you read some of the other "rumours" on that page you'll see what I mean.

Kickaha and Amorph couldn't moderate themselves out of a paper bag. Abdicate responsibility and succumb to idiocy. Two years of letting a member make personal attacks against others, then stepping aside when someone won't put up with it. Not only that but go ahead and shut down my posting priviledges but not the one making the attacks. Not even the common decency to abide by their warning (afer three days of absorbing personal attacks with no mods in sight), just shut my posting down and then say it might happen later if a certian line is crossed. Bullshit flag is flying, I won't abide by lying and coddling of liars who go off-site, create accounts differing in a single letter from my handle with the express purpose to decieve and then claim here that I did it. Everyone be warned, kim kap sol is a lying, deceitful poster.

Now I guess they should have banned me rather than just shut off posting priviledges, because kickaha and Amorph definitely aren't going to like being called to task when they thought they had it all ignored *cough* *cough* I mean under control. Just a couple o' tools.

Don't worry, as soon as my work resetting my posts is done I'll disappear forever.

Don't forget, megathreads like "Mercury Rising" which didn't survive "The Great AI Blackout" wouldn't be on any kind of current "Top 10" list.

I'd have to agree, This is a huge load of crap. These two sites are setting up major disappointments across the Mac community, and it's going to suck. I hate listening/(reading) to all the whiners that believe rumors. They are the freaking worst types of idiots to deal with.

Of course everybody wishes numbers like those were true, but that's just somebody's imaginative thinking being interpreted as factual. It's a shame there are no real rumors until a few days before announcements.

This is why I shouldnt waste time trying to figure out anything from Apples shipping times:

Friday
1.6 GHz G5 Same Day
1.8 GHz G5 Same Day
2.0 GHz G5 Same Day

Monday
1.6 GHz G5 Same Day
1.8 GHz G5 1-3 Days
2.0 GHz G5 1-3 Days

Tuesday
1.6 GHz G5 3-5 Days
1.8 GHz G5 3-5 Days
2.0 GHz G5 Same Day

Just weird and, apparently, I need a life.

Simple, Apple will still continue to sell dual 2.0GHz systems after the update while the single CPU systems will be discontinued.

See how easy that was?

It seems to me that it is a little soon yet to see new PowerMac G5s. Perhaps March?

MacBidouille (have to check that spelling every time), while no longer doing the rumor thing, does have an interesting tidbit. Someone received a 1.6GHz G5 with 8 memory slots (i.e, a dual motherboard). They imply this means the single proc mbs are "out" and an all-dual lineup is in order.

Anyway, if new machines aren't out by the time I have some funds together, I'm going to try and grab a dual 1.8 refurb and pull the 5200fx card, buy a 9800 and slap that in. I figure I still come out ahead, even though I lose the EDU discount. Timing is everything, though.

Just to make it even more confusing reading tea leaves from shipping dates etc., go to their Special Deals page. I hadn't noticed it before, but they are now listing a lot of "Previous Generation" deals, with some very attractive pricing.
just waiting to be included in one of Apple's target markets.

ok i think i have it figured out:

apple just started shipping ilife04 with new macs, minis start shipping, xserves start shipping, and refurb supplies are LOW. i say not feb 17th, but feb 24th. everything's getting out the door, and therefore apple can focus on releasing a new product.

also, and i totally forget where i read it, someone said they recevied a single 1.6 g5 that had a logic board or something that only duals use. therefore, i think we'll see an all dual line-up, but the low end will still be on the 130nm process.

discuss.

www.macbidouille.com presents the news about the 1.6Ghz model with 8 memoryslots. What they believe is that the lack motherboards with 4 mem.slots, and ship them with the old 1.8GHz model mb.

New models 24th of Feb would be nice, yup... my hope is before 26th of March

Unfortunately I can't see the Australia tradeup promo as meaning anything other than no new G5s before 3/26. Had I known it would be this long I would have gotten a dual 1.8 many months ago, but now I might as well keep waiting.

A foundry is a plant that makes chips for other companies that design chips.

The real news here is that the IBM exec said they were about to deliver 90nm versions of a System On a Chip (SOC) design for Apple.

SOCs are completely different from CPUs. If this is not a transcription error on the reporter's part, it is big news.

Foundry, in this case represents IBM's chip making factories. They not only make their own chips, they make chips to order for other people (i.e. Apple). As for the interpretation of the article itself, I was hoping for the board to give a better interpretation than I can make. The whole thing seems to contradict itself.

There's no contradiction. IBM is just bragging that their designs are better than anyone else's. They're saying outside designs require an average of 2.5 revisions before going into full production mode. (ie: No one knows SOI at 0.13 micron like IBM does! It's just chest pounding.)

SOC designs usually incorporate CPU, memory controller and I/O devices like ethernet, USB, etc. It literally is a system on a chip.

You'd expect something like that in a set top box, or a router, or some other "dedicated" device, not a general purpose computing device.

Design can be a major issue in getting a process to fab correctly from the start. 970 is not a foundry contract but IBM's flagship product which has been shipping for over six months now. Big difference.

Go back and read the last line. Carefully.
