First of all, if both of those machines were the same e.g. x86's, then definitely the 55C one. The max core temp on that one could very well be 90C or higher as well. But if one was the Mac and it ran at 80c, then no question, the Mac.

When in a hot climate, and or a humid one, ALL computer manufacturers highly recommend air conditioning. NONE of these machines is advised to be operated at temps higher than 85 degrees. It is irresponsible to run them at 90+ temps, esp. with high humidity.

Secondly, IBM's PPC chips do use SOI. Where did you get the idea that they don't? They also use copper interconnects.

As IBM invented both technologies, they use them on their own chips first. AMD's chips got SOI later than the PPC's did. As an aside, silicone is soft and malleable. It's used for calk, not chips. You mean silicon, as in quartz.

silicone is used as well for fake titties..!!

"U gotta admite if u had 2 systems side by side and both the same and one running say 55to 65C and the other running 75-80°C with a max core temp of 90C what would u choose?I would choose the 55 to 65 temp one."

I did not say apple or x86 did i ?

Yes they do after some digging on ibm site.Still looking for power usage for each chip 1.8ghz+.All i found was some xserv 2ghz ones.But i not sure that the same spec's in power wise as a Pm 2ghz for the reason apple/ibm might be using the "best" chips for the xserv.

sorry for adding the "e" in silicon.



question what where what g5 chips 90nm and what chips are 130?or there just all 90nm g5's?

I know that you didn't say Apple or x86. That's why I gave examples of what I would do in both cases. I wasn't quite sure what you were asking.

Insofar as finding information about these chips. The info about SOI, copper, strained silicon, etc. has been out in the news for months. Every tech site has had discussions about it.

It's a good question about the 90 vs. 130 chips. When Apple came out with the 2.5s, they were the only chips using 90nm. IBM has been transitioning over to 90 on the other speeds as well. I haven't been keeping up with that though. If I have time I will check.

It would be easier to work with your posts if you checked, and fixed them first.

Er, yes, I thought I'd pass on that one.
