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.

Never understimate a Macintosh apologists ability to repeat Steve Job's verbatem.

I'm not trying to be rude or insulting; but it does start to seem like that sometimes. This is one of those times where Mac fans cried for so long about how G5 was better than Xeon (we all know anything beats Prescott) and Opteron and now that Apple is leaving it suddenly Intel is going to produce an amazing x86 chip for them? Do you guys just trust Steve Jobs implicitly?
If I had been a big Mac fan (and I was a big fan of the G5 and the G4 actually) when this happened I'd have shut-up about processor superiority and started talking about hardware quality and OS superiority.
