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.

Each porduct should be judged on its own merits.

The problem is that years ago, when Apple was spouting the "MHz myth" and "the G3 is faster than any Pentium II" the Mac fanboys bought it wholesale. They continued to believe it long after the G3's limitations became painfully apparent.

I am an unashamed G4 fanboy... but the Pentium M is really sweet.

The ironic thing is that back when the P-M was called the Pentium II, the G4 fanboys thought it was a piece of shit. If the P-M is really sweet (better than a G4, certainly), wouldn't that have made the PII "pretty sweet"? That's not what the G4 fanboys said. Nope, all I heard was "MHz myth, nyah nyah nyah, I can't hear you!"
