IBM IBM has today presented various new versions of their G5 processor at the Power Everywhere Forum in Japan. Firstly, it introduced the much-anticipated PowerPC 970MP, the dual-core version of the G5. In addition, they also announced 3 low-power G5s, ranging from 1.2Ghz at 13W to 1.6Ghz at 16W. These processors will most likely find their way into Apple's Macs.

IBM, like Intel, reports average thermal design power. I couldn't tell you how much higher max thermal design power is, but for reference, a Prescott with 130W TDP can use over 180W under load. It should be noted that AMD deserves kudos for citing max thermal design power in their specs.
