    Did you follow the link? The graphics core is located on a quite regular GPU. AFAIK the 970 didn't have any problems. IBM's been doing multi core CPUs for ages, and i think the POWER5 MCM is quite a bit more complicated than this 3 core CPU.

    If it's here...why is it on my desk right now? Just because there has been a trickle of 90nm G5 in Xserve form, doesn't mean "it's here". It'll be here when consumers can get them in sufficient quantities.



    Right now there's a problem with yields so we have to wait.

    Well that's that's the first time I've ever agreed with a myth. (KKS)

    The "confirmed" block diagram of the Xbox 2. It will have a tripple core PPC running at 3.5+ GHz, and each core seem to be hyperthreaded (POWER5 derived?). No integrated memory controller though. 84 GFLOPs per chip..




    Triple core does not mean 3x3.5 Ghz!

    And if it only has one chip, then 84 GFlops PER chip is a stupid statement to do...



    On top of that, this is anything but a confirmation... A can make a drawing too you know.

    Huh? You're making no sense in your rush to disbelieve.
