When are we going to see Amigas with G5 processors? Last time I looked the fastest Amiga was somewhat slower than the slowest Mac available.

That will take a long time to get here. There were two efforts going, but they were proven too expensive. But the G4 isn't dead yet. New 2 Ghz dual-core Freescale G4's are on the way, cheaper and lower-powered than ever.

There will be more G4 hardware on the way, before we'll be seeing any G5 stuff.

The G5 isn't irrelevant, but an AmigaOne trademark is that you have an extremely responsive and fast machine with hardware that only consumes about 20-30W. The G5 can't provide that yet.

Don't be fooled by the size of the processor. AmigaOS4 is screaming fast on even an 800 Mhz G3.
