IBM Judging by details revealed in a chip conference agenda, the clock frequency race isn't over yet. IBM's Power6 processor will be able to exceed 5 gigahertz in a high-performance mode, and the second-generation Cell Broadband Engine processor from IBM, Sony and Toshiba will run at 6GHz, according to the program for the International Solid State Circuits Conference that begins February 11 in San Francisco.

Hardly - the only 64-Bit PPC development IBM has done the last year has been CELL related.

At this moment and in years to come Apple will have no use for either CELL nor Power.

Even though I love the PPC, I think the x86 change was a wise step (I would have prefered an AMD/ATi connection instead).
