Apple The omnipresent 'sources' of AppleInsider have told the rumoursite that Apple has 'outsourced' the design of the next PowerMac's motherboard to Intel. "In a move that may surprise some Apple watchers, reliable sources tell AppleInsider the Mac maker has contracted the design duties for its next-generation Power Mac motherboard over to industry heavyweight Intel. With Apple moving aggressively to introduce four Intel-based Mac models in the first four months of 2006 - iMacs, 15-inch PowerBooks, 13-inch widescreen iBooks and Mac minis - resources at the company's engineering labs have worn thin, sources said." Judge for yourself.

For the sake of your own self-respect I sincerely hope that you are trolling. SPEC biased for the x86? NEXTSTEP heavily optimized for the x86? Ignoring that most of OS X wasn't derived from NEXTSTEP but was developed from an a collection of sources and entirely new technologies? Claiming without any evidence that the PPC has not just been competitive but has been a performance leader for years?
