Dorsal just makes good guesses. He's well versed in the current tech trends, and in the trends among Apple's suppliers, such as Motorola. He hasn't given us any real inside info, only guesses. And of course a few of his guesses were right. That doesn't mean he "nailed" any expos, it only means that if one guesses enough, they will be right.
It doesn't impress me at all when someone says the mobos will either be like type A, or type B, or if Apple decides not to change them then they won't change, but maybe there will be a small bump in bus speed (since PC133 RAM is so popular), and if Apple decides then maybe the mobos will not get squat.
See how easy it is? I want real insider info, Worker Bee caliber shit---the sort of stuff that the Taliban would give their lives to have.
OK, so here's how it's done, listen up!
I've got four prototype powermacs on my desk.
Two are G5s, one has a 266 MHz bus, DDR ram, the other has a 400 MHz hypertransport mobo and it screams. But Apple is undecided between the two.
The other two prototypes use Apollo G4s, one with the current mobo, the other with an updated mobo using DDR ram, 266 MHz bus, and updated firewire bus. They both scream.
MHz: The G5s are clocked at 1.2 and 1.4 GHz. We got a few in that were clocked at 1.6 and 1.8 MHz, but Apple took them back because of some cooling issues. One of the Apollos is clocked at 1 GHz, the other at 1.133 GHz, but we've played around with the bus multiplier and clocked it as high as 1.4 GHz. So Apple could release the Apollo anywhere from 1 GHz up to 1.4 GHz, as the top end.
There, see how easy it is? I pulled that outta my ass, without even reading about anything. Dorsal's "inside info" is about the same...he makes these shotgun predictions that cover any and all scenarios, then when the new powermacs are announced he's always right, because he predicted EVERYTHING!
Damn you people are easy to fool, quick to bait, and hard to convince. Amazing!
