G5-2.5 shipping dates. - Page 7

post #241 of 336
The 1.8's are affected as of now. From what I've been hearing the 1.8's are going to the iMacs for a while.

The dual 2.0s aren't doing to bad right now. Ironically I ordered from ADC and was told 10 days.... I got it in 1 day. Perhaps cause of being pissed for not being able to getmy 2.5... but either way... it is a 90nm proc too.

I don't think the 2.0 are 90 nm, afaik, they are the 970, not the 970 fx. The fx has the production problem. The 2.5 being a 90 nm was my argument to order that one, not the 2.0.
Can anyone shed some light on this?

Apparently all Power Macs now shipping are 90nm. The CPU ID in the current 1.8 and 2.0 models is identical to the 2.5s, but different from the previous generation AND the very earliest rev-B 2.0s. My guess is that Apple used up the stock of 1.8 and 2.0GHz 130nm parts early in the producion run, and all are now 90nm.

YOu can verify your chip a few different ways:

in the terminal.... ioreg -l | grep "cpu-version"

0300x0300 is 90nm 970fx
0220x0220 is 130nm 970

I just did those #'s from memory, but its something like that. I'm on my pc now so I can't verify them specifically.

Also if you run dnetc it tells you which processors you have. And yes mine says 970fx 2.0. My friend bought one of the first dual 1.8's and it is a 970... can someone who has just bought one verify they are 90nm now? (use the ioreg command).

Anyways, yes I have 90nm.

BTW... the XServe g5 is also 90nm 2.0ghz... that was the problem with their shipping times.

Hey,

Congrats to everyone and their new g5's!
i was just wondering if anyone with this 9/7 release recieved a notice of shipment

i ordered mine july 1st and "supposedly" am supposed to have it shipped today, no notification yet.
post #247 of 336
My original ship date was July 28th. That was changed on July 27th to Sept 9th. I just checked again (as Sept 9th is around the corner) and my new ship date is now October 8th.

I'd say there are some significant supply issues, and possibly even technical ones with the new 2.5s. As I mentioned the other day, the Chicago downtown store had no 2.5s on display (although they swore they were "in the building")

Interesting....
post #248 of 336
Every day I'm more and more happy I didn't get a 2.5 and a 2.0 instead. That would have been a long wait since I've been waiting since december.

My 7/1 order with its last ship date of 9/7 has shipped!
post #250 of 336
I sure do hope none of these dual 2.5's are bad... otherwise you'll be waiting a lot longer!

(congrats on the shipping btw)

From what I heard today, they are anything BUT bad. A friend of mine recently got his and apparently it's amazing. He used to have a dual 2Ghz but sold it as soon as he got the 2.5. He works with video and said that the difference in processing performance is stunning. He's ordered several more for his company based on his first one, so I'd say that's a ringing endorsement.

My 2.0 order from 8/12, shipped today from CA, meaning I'll have it tomorrow. They said it was going to ship from China, so it was a good surprise.

Think so eh? Why don't you go take a look at all the 2.5's that have bad procs and mobos on the apple discussion boards. People's estimated time of getting their machine back from repairs is about 4-8 weeks

I got a telephone call from the ADC yesterday, with a confirmed shipping date of "on or before Oct 8th" and a big apology. I was quite shocked. and indeed very pleased, to get that. Very courteous and polite. They also said that there would be no more slips in the schedule. Here's hoping.

That's good news since I'm ready to order, but, like dirk, I want it shipped as soon as they charge my credit card.

You're waiting or you're waiting. It doesn't matter. You'll get it sooner if you get in line now. Apple doesn't charge your CC until they ship it. They may do authorizations when it gets close to shipping, but they don't actually charge it.

No one has received 6800s.

I split my order of G5 + 6800 to get my G5 quicker. I received my machine on 9/2 with the ATI 9600XT card and I was originally told I'd get the 6800 shipped by 9/17. Unfortunately now I have a shipdate of 10/15 for the 6800 :/

I am still waiting for the G5 dual 2.5 with a ship date of on or before 10/7 and the nVidea 6800 on or before 10/25/04 kind of a drag to wait 3 to 4 months for a box that will no longer be state of the art by the time I get it

LOL I ordered like a week before you so that means I might still be waiting too!!

Did you order directly from apple? I ordered through ADC... I ended up getting a dual 2.0 instead of a 2.5 and LOVE MY 2.0!! I'm actually happier I got the 2.0 then the 2.5 for a few reasons... mainly the water cooling (don't trust it yet) and I was able to afford the free printer and iPod... it all worked out fine... I also upgraded my graphics card to the 9600xt so I'm happy. (I got it 4 days after I changed my order from 2.5... came straight from china)

Is anyone getting the dual 2.5's?
post #270 of 336
I've had my Dual 2.5 PowerMac for two weeks now...

I ended up splitting the order a custom config 2.5 and the 6800 shipping seperatly. I still haven't received the 6800 should ship on the 10/15/04, but like everything else in my order this date has already been bumped a few times because apple can't meet their deadlines.

Oh well... everything on the computer is cruzin at 2.5 and is running my 23" just fine. But I'm looking forward to that 6800!

KCOM: So how is the 2.5? Is it nice and zippy? My order got pushed to "on or before 10/08" with the 6800 card (and a guarantee by phone that there will be NO more delays in shipment - they called me!)

Anyhow, I was just wondering how you're finding the 2.5's performance overall.

When did you order? My 6800 says on or before 10/15.

I verified the 9/30 or before shipping date on my 30" and 6800 yesterday and it is still valid. All the dates, even the most recent changes poeted here, seem to indicate these will be shipping.

Don't hold your breath. My last 4 ship dates changed only 1 or 2 days before the posted date. I called and confirmed the last one (9/22) and was told it would not slip.

They must love those statements...

"no your date won't slip this time... we promise".

I don't like apple reps... they know they lie to you.

Yes, my hope is that the 10/22 date was deliberately pushed out that far to keep me from getting mad when it changes again. I'm hoping it will come before then.

I have a 9/30 ship date on my 30" and 6800. This date was just set by Apple about a week ago and it was still the date as of yesterday. Prior to 9/15 or so my reseller had NO date. My order was placed before Harry's. So, has Apple and NVIDIA solved the problem and are going to start shipping? Did they move Harry's date based on production now that the problem is solved?

Apple going from no date to one a couple of weeks out seems to me to indicate they are in fact are going to start shipping but, but there are many, many people with orders in before mine and I have heard of no one actually receiving theirs.

I also believe Apple has the 30" displays. I believe once the problem is solved with the 6800 they can spit them out in big numbers. Based on that Apple can begin shipping the separate orders for the 30" and 6800's pretty darn fast. The G5's with the 6800's installed will be dependent on G5 production.

My BTO G5 2.5 (without the 6800) is scheduled for 10/13 or before. That, I think, could be because Apple is going to devote 100% of production for a bit to G5's with the 6800's if in fact the 6800 problem is fixed.

Viable? I think maybe. This next week or so is going to be most interesting.

I ordered my G5/160 from Amazon last Friday and it arrives tomorrow! They or their supplier must have some in stock though their web page quotes 1 to 2 weeks for delivery not 1 to 2 business days for most in stock items.
