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.

I would to correct something related to this news. This information indeed mentions the IBM's 945 northbridge as being used in those new mainborad, and notes that this is the corresponding version of the current PowerMac's system controlle. Thats a mistake, apple does not use an IBM northbridge, Apple use their own designed controller system, U3. Apple use also its own designed I/O controler, KeyLargo.
