    Apparently he's a homophobe and is confident that his information is accurate because calling him gay would damage him psychologically.

    Maybe he's just happy?



    I don't think we'll ever see a GF4Ti embedded variant. We'll probabaly get a 5MX first (or whatever they decide to call it when it comes out)

    Blaaah.....



    I enjoy these specs even better...



    200Mhz bus IBM G5*

    =================

    1.5Ghz

    1.6Ghz

    1.7Ghz



    Oh and as a bonus MY numbers WORK since you can't get 1.5Ghz on a 166Mhz BUS anyway. 1.499Ghz yes but no such thing as 1.5Ghz on a 166 bus. Oh and unlike MOT I'm willing to bet IBM will not have a problem supporting DDR with their CPU.

    [ * or whatever it'll be called... That new Power4 based CPU that will be showcased in Oct]

    Wow, I'm glad we're gong back to posting rumors with a solid basis in reality!



    There is no ****ing G5!

    I swear someone should just write a random future Mac spec generator and we can be done with these forums!!



    Screed



    Some preliminary rules:

    1) Variable for CPU Clock cycle (CPU_Clock) must be divisible by system bus variable (SysBus)

    2) Set G5 to null

    How bout I just call you "idiot", since you obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Then again, that would make well over 50% of the people who post predictions like this "idiots". But your title / inference is particularly useless, so I'll just pin it on you for now.





    PS - learn how to use a punctuation mark.

    With regard to a Motorola "G5", it does exist as a desktop CPU. But as I understand the situation it was put on the back burner due to cooling problems.

    I doubt we'll see the blasted thing, but to say there "is no G5" is a little inaccurate.

    I'm sure Apple will eventually call some processor the G5, but people need to stop predicting it's upcoming release after every product announcment where it isn't released. We will not see any G5 until next year at the earliest, and probably late in the year at that.



    There is nothing wrong with the G4 that would be cured by changing the number to a 5.

    And a sample of the output:

    Genius.



    God I love the Internet.
