IBM IBM has today presented various new versions of their G5 processor at the Power Everywhere Forum in Japan. Firstly, it introduced the much-anticipated PowerPC 970MP, the dual-core version of the G5. In addition, they also announced 3 low-power G5s, ranging from 1.2Ghz at 13W to 1.6Ghz at 16W. These processors will most likely find their way into Apple's Macs.

Having dual G5/3000Mhz for mobiles would be a bit too much, no? Also, what with the Mhz Myth? From my point of view, Apple move is all about cash and nothing about technology.

Apple can switch even to Z80, IBM and Freescale couldn't care less.

Sorry but the current powerbook G4 technology doesn't come close to Sonoma, much less the upcoming Napa (2nd and 3rd generation Centrino).

"Apple move is all about cash and nothing about technology. "

Oh, and YES! They want to make more money, what did you expect? How can they achieve that? By having more competitive hardware! That's debatable from the PowerMac's point of view but I think it's clear they will be much better off with Intel when it comes to the Laptops.

,,Oh, and YES! They want to make more money, what did you expect?''

I'm have nothing against that, we're all working for cash. ;-) But I've mentioned it because Apple would love to claim that there's more technical merits in that.
