Morphos PPCNux (German) as well as Pegasos-Forum (German) report about new information about Genesi's new G5 based mainboard. The mainboard which will feature the PowerPC 970MP CPU will have the new microBTX format (26.4x26.7cm/10.4"x10.5"). As system controller IBM's 945 northbridge was chosen which is the corresponding version of the current PowerMac's system controller. ATI will provide the graphics chipset for the new mainboard. It is currently not known which product name the mainboard will have. In addition, Mupper 1.0 has been released.

why can't they find some graphics chipset that has some 3d power on the ppc platform?

I might be misunderstanding your statement to be about the general PPC/mac market and not just this board, but FYI the latest PowerMacs now support the Geforce 7800 and Quadro 4500. It's been a long time coming for PowerMacs to have decent 3D card options, but it's great to see support for them now.
