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.

Genesi and PA Semi are both members of so it would not surprise me to see Genesi and PA working together in mid-2006 when the first PA chips are ready. After all genesi works with all the other PPC vendors already - Freescale, IBM and AMCC. I would only worry if I was Freescale because PA looks like they have Freescale's customer base in mind. If PA can do what they claim Freescale's lock on telecom and other embedded markets is seriously threatened. It makes sense for PA to work with Genesi too as PA needs to build communities around their reference designs and Genesi has successfully done this in a big way already.
