    If this is legit, it should put to rest all the caterwauling in AO about the existence of God. All of that in one box for a top-end G5? FOUR hard drive slots? TWO optical bays? Miracles. Amazing Miracles.

    This french site has the upcoming powermac as codename "trinity". If I recall correctly, that was the codename for the G4 Cube, right? This alone dismisses their credibility, seems totally made up to me.

    Yep, the cube was Trinity. Highly doubtful they would reuse the same codename for a different project...



    I think they are trying to play on the fact that the original PM G5 was called Neo...

    Maybe a re-use of the codename to make us rumor-mongers sceptic?

    Or maybe they are going to make it a cube form factor...



    The cube is back! The cube is back!!

    Except, this time, it'll be a 18x18x18 cube, in order to fit all the drives and slots.

    One Neo (Mac) for several thousand Smiths (PC).. sounds about right.

    *sigh*



    Sounds way too good...



    ...to be true.



    Codename Trinity? - been done.



    FireGL video cards? - unlikely, it'd push the price into the stratosphere.



    I'm hoping though that they *do* come out with a tower with an extra bay for removable media and dual layer capable superdrives!

    The way I read the article, they are saying specifically that the PROCESSOR, not the machine, is codenamed "Trinity". Which makes sense if you look at it like:



    1 - PPC 970

    2 - PPC 970 FX

    3 - PPC 975



    3 = Tri = Trinity



    Whether or not the other specs are correct, only time will tell...

    I think you are clutching at straws here a bit...

    Steve knew last year that the 3ghz he promised within a year would be based on the 975 chipset. Apple and IBM roadmap this stuff out well in advance. The mid-year bump was scratched because of problems with the 970FX but the 975 is right on schedule and is producing very reliable yields a 3ghz. The PCIe is incorporated into the new design but only for replacement of AGP for now. Don't know if it will be available in all three models or only the 3ghz.

    And here I thought the obvious one was Trinity = 3 GHz. I think you guys are slipping.

    Or maybe trinity because there are three of them, altho Trio would be a better name for the group.



    Dual 3GHz 975's... that's going to be one powerful machine. Still, I doubt we'll be able to clutch it to our bosoms before we say goodbye to 2004.

    Great musical reference! I'm not a classical music connesieur but I would like to find more music like that Carmina Burana stuff.



    Anyways, I find these frenchies hard to believe after their first failed prediction back in March. If the updates come with the most top of the line graphics card standard, I'm suspicious. Haven't the PMs always had the option to upgrade to the better graphics card? Why would apple suddenly include the best possible card, and jack up the price? Just my "2-cents"...

    Actually, that exact thing you notice here, are the same thing they said when they posted their march rumor!

    Now what would a link mean in rumorland? It's "anything goes" around here.
