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.

Those cards only have 3D support under MacOS on PPC; this board is most likely to be used with Linux. ATi 3D support on Linux/PPC goes up to the Radeon 9200 or so, and not particularly fast; that is what the poster was refering to.
