Morphos In a comment on the Power.org blog, Pieter Van den Abeele wrote that Genesi will be releasing the Open Server Workstation, which will be based on the PowerPC 970 (G5) chip. The system is scheduled for release this month give or take a few weeks, and will cost $1599. Developers can also register for a free workstation.

> Isnt this a little pricey for a G% system?

For a quad core system? No. I don't think it is pricey at all. I think it is quite reasonable. Especially when you consider that with x86 you don't even have any option for a quad core 64 bit system, so you would have to buy a motherboard that supported dual processors, and then install two dual core CPUs. By the time you got done with that, I suspect the x86 system would cost signifantly more than this quad core G5.
