Will Apple move to the POWER 5 instead of PPC?
To me this sounds logical in that it would focus development dollars and help IBM and Apple much more. I thought that the focus of the POWER 5 was reduced energy demands and IBM will need to move to the more exotic technologies as speed increases slow down to keep overall performance on par. I would think that this makes sense. I thought that that there was an article about this and was talked about here but the discussion was derailed. Does it appear that Apple could move to the POWER series and there by have their development money that they pay IBM go further. It seems to me that the shift would not be terribly difficult and the shift in focus would help IBM and Apple.
