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.

I believe Yonah is a Pentium III derivative, which is a Pentium II derivative, which is a Pentium Pro (notice I didn't say derivative).

There is almost no difference between a PIII and a PII aside from the on-die cache (which some P2s had IIRC) and SSE. SSE is so bolt-on in the P6 architecture that its hardly worth considering as a new generation of chip.
