  • Quote: Originally posted by mattyj Thanks for clearing that up JRG, wasn't sure if it was all correct. So what your saying is that AMDs and Intel multiple core system share the FSB, but the AMDs have access to there own memory and therefore great…
  • Quote: Originally posted by mattyj Ok here goes: Multiple processors have the advantage of having their own front side bus, multi core processors have to share a single bus. You are confusing two different processor topologies here. The…

  • Quote: Originally posted by Mr. H Wow! Wow again! Just what is Apple going to do with all that cash? This is the big question. Having a great stash of cash is good for the security and stability of the company. The problem with …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Chucker If it's a hot seller, there's no need to change it. Revisions kick in when there's a trend (kicked in, or expected to kick in soon) towards lower sales. Of course you're right, though. Macs will eventually…
  • Quote: Originally posted by wizard69 There is certainly the potential for vastly improved Media processing by taking this route. Further if the facility is open to developers some really interesting non Media processing applications open up. …
  • If Intel does not, for whatever reason, supply the processors that Apple requires there is a simple, if expensive solution. Apple could buy AMD and for the first time ever be in total control of its chip future. Apple has a Market Cap of about $…
  • Quote: Originally posted by hmurchison Charliehorse huh? Name sounds painful. I also believe the future Powermacs in 2007 will have dual dual-core Intels. However you won't likely see them have HT because they're based off of cores that ha…

  • Quote: Originally posted by onlooker That is obviously exactly what he is saying. Even an educational seat for the compiler is big $$$, and more than Apples charges for their OS. Apple can't purchase one copy of it, and distribute it freely with …
  • Quote: Originally posted by shadow 2. Apple did NOTHING to move Tiger to 64 bit architecture. Few low level patches, available in Panther as well, for those who need to use 64 bitness - but not available in Cocoa. Apple has added a signif…
  • Quote: Originally posted by wizard69 [B]True but those server features do not detract from its usefullness to Apple. I would have to think at some point that adding the little bit extra to Power5 that Apple needs for its machines would in the en…
