Apple Apple's PowerMac line will see an upgrade in the near future, possibly before the close of the month. IBM's July announcement noted that the PowerPC 970MP would be available in speeds of 1.4GHz to 2.5GHz. Apple is expected to adopt the 970MP at least at the high-end of the new Power Mac G5 line. So, what are your thoughts on the 970MP? Does it nullify Apple's reasoning behind the switch to Intel? Also note the low-power G5 IBM has released alongside the 970MP.

the p4 was at a higher clock though, as intel has always sold cpus on mhz alone it was not all that hard marketing wise.

You are right however, it was a while before the P4 was as fast as the P3 was

And from the looks of things, the P3 still ended up winning in the long ru (or at least, descendant in the form of the P-M).
