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.

And I'd love to see Solaris being offered on it; admittingly there is a port already, but it would be nice to see more support putt behind it; it would definately give the PPC platform that profile it needs as a viable alternative, not only as a basis for a workstation but also as a server.
