Morphos PPCNux (German) as well as Pegasos-Forum (German) report about new information about Genesi's new G5 based mainboard. The mainboard which will feature the PowerPC 970MP CPU will have the new microBTX format (26.4x26.7cm/10.4"x10.5"). As system controller IBM's 945 northbridge was chosen which is the corresponding version of the current PowerMac's system controller. ATI will provide the graphics chipset for the new mainboard. It is currently not known which product name the mainboard will have. In addition, Mupper 1.0 has been released.

I don't mean to sound like a whiner, but why can't they find some graphics chipset that has some 3d power on the ppc platform? why waste time on some ATI or NVidia crap if we can get better acceleration on another chipset?

Because it's a waste of time and recources to support some chipset/card that 1) nobody haves 2) costs loads, resulting step 1.
