Fastest Personal Computer ever!
    #1655827 - 06/23/03 02:55 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

The Worldwide Developers' Conference is taking place right now. Steve Jobs, Apple computer CEO, is finishing his keynote.

He annouced the G5. Specs:

For the chip Apple turned to IBM. The G5 is the world's first 64-bit processor, notes Jobs.

The G5 runs current 32-bit apps natively, runs up to 2GHz, 1GHz front-side bus (fastest bus ever says Jobs).

The G5 is designed for dual processor systems. It offers 215 in-flight instructions (the G4 can only do 16), an optimized Velocity engine, two double precision floating points, two fload store units, massive branch prediction logic, 130 nanometer process, silicon on insulator, and 8 layer copper interconnects.

Dual processors are offered, with up to 8GB of DDR memory (yes, you read that correctly).

Jobs says you could transfer the entire content of a DVD in a second off RAM.

Also featured is an all aluminum enclosure, GeFore FX5200 Ultra in the low-end, SuperDrive in all, a single white Apple logo on the side, mesh on the front and back, smaller handles, four separate thermal zones, breakthrough computer controlled cooling, 9 fans inside, 35 dBA (twice as quiet as a G4), with independent speed control.

Three Models: 1.6GHz, 80GB HD, 256GB RAM, $1999: 1.8GHZ, 160GB HD, 512GB RAM, $2399; dual 2GHz, 160GB HD, 512MB RAM, $2999.

Max of 500gb of internal storage.

Apple says 3GHz models will be available in 12 months.

The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

I've wanted a mac for soooooo long. the problem is the price. I know it's worth it, I just simply can't afford that, and the dell I just bought is working out perfectly. with this new G5 apple now has me drooling... thankfully, I have some great business opportunities coming my way soon.  :grin:

Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.
