  • [quote]Originally posted by filmmaker2002: Has Apple realized that by the time the G5 is released at the rumored clock speeds, Intel's processors will probably be upwards of around 4 or possibly even 5 Ghz. I understand Mhz aren't everything. I am …
  • [quote]Originally posted by G-News: I'll tell you guys in 6 weeks when that baby arrives here. "Going to scream, it is." G-News Congratulations G-News! Personally, I'm tired of waiting and didn't want to wait another 6 weeks. Likewise, I…
  • [quote]Originally posted by Brussel: The hype comes from people who say "X will automagically speed up everything you do because the OS is MP-aware!" That's nonsense. True, but on a dual machine, you could be running a PS filter, playing …
  • [quote]Originally posted by The Mactivist: I find it hard to believe that the GPUL powermac will wait until the summer. Power users are starved - and there's no doubt that all these rumors about the post-g4 processor are hurting powermac sales. …
  • [quote]Originally posted by Junkyard Dawg: I thought that all these recent benchmarks would shut up the whiners here who think that performance doesn't matter. Alas, looking under your post, I see that it's only ruffled their feathers. Firs…
  • Technically, it would be possible for Apple to go Intel. Business wise, it would be a dumb idea. Here are some thoughts: 1) The only reason Apple would go Intel would be if Apple came to a realization that no PPC will ever be able to match or…
  • [quote]Originally posted by Yet Another Registration: Next summer. The death of Motorola's G5 has thrown plans into chaos. I'm betting on IBM, possibly Cell or the next gen 750 with SIMD goodness. http://www.newsfactor.com/perl/story/17823.html
  • [quote]Originally posted by Amorph: Interesting; but if there's a glut in the channel, Apple could just be cutting production so as not to glut it further. One of the advantages of calling an Apple Event is that you can do it on relatively short n…
  • [quote]Originally posted by evangellydonut: Unfortunately, the MAJORITY of the population are at the the level of EE wannabe's... ...and that's absolutely fine. All are welcome and everyone's entitled to an opinion, etc. The problem is, I'…
  • [quote]Originally posted by macubus: Not with the same crappy 133Mhz bus. It's like getting a ferrari and setting a speed governor to 55mph. I don't mean to pick on anyone here in particular. However, people keep quoting crap like this…
  • [quote]Originally posted by Keeksy: As John Carmack said, NVIDIA spent too many of its resources on the Xbox and has now fallen behind in the 3D chip space. I recall Carmack commenting on nVidia getting side tracked with XBox, but I don't reca…
  • [quote]Originally posted by sizzle chest: There have been times when you didn't really get much for your money by going from the "faster" (or "better") machine, up to the "fastest" (or "best") one. When I bought my 450DP, the extra thousand …
  • [quote]Originally posted by Outsider: Moto still sells 400Mhz 604ev processors. If they moved it to 180nm and 130nm it should scale higher than the 750. The 750FX also has a 5 stage pipeline and it's a 180nm chip that runs at 700-800MHz. A 130nm 60…
  • [quote]Originally posted by Programmer: My point is merely this -- there is a real benefit to higher frame rates which are stable and rock solid, and these go beyond just measuring machine performance. Most humans can tell the difference between a…
  • [quote]Originally posted by ZoSo: Let's give a little twist to this thread... Talking about current hi-end and future GPUs (I don't like the marketing term, but just to make it short...) how do they compare in terms of core complexity/performance/…
  • [quote]Originally posted by Programmer: All I can say to this is: you have obviously never seen a game with a high simulation rate driving a 30 or 60 Hz video display sync'd to the display (on a switch so that you can toggle between 30 and 60)…
  • [quote]Originally posted by Programmer: Yeah yeah, I know all of that. Rather than getting into all the theory (there's way too much), suffice it to say that at around 60 Hz most people can tell the difference between a frame rate which floa…
  • [quote]Originally posted by Programmer: Roughly speaking, if Doom3 is fill rate limited (likely), the nv30 should then be able to run 1280x960 @ 30 Hz. [email protected] Hz (60 fps is meaningless on a typical computer display unless it happens to be …
  • [quote]Originally posted by blackboard: Here's what the buzz in the dealer channel is... Yes, we'd all like to believe something like that. This scenario seems unlikely for several reasons. Dealers are not told the details of future products…
  • [quote]Originally posted by Kecksy: I'm beginning to think that the chip Dorsal described earlier is not a G4, but in fact the G5. He said it used RapidIO and OCEAN and was also Book E compliant. That sounds a lot like the G5 to me. I agree…
