PowerMac G5 Revision in Jan 2004?
Wednesday November 12, 2003 12:38 PM

AppleInsider reports that Apple is planning to release PowerMac G5 revisions by the end of January.

According to the rumor site, currently testing PowerMacs range from single 2.0GHz to dual 2.5GHz G5s and claims that IBM has had G5 chips at up to 2.5GHz in sampling since March.

IBM briefly leaked a press release in March claiming the PowerPC 970 will reach speeds between 1.8GHz and 2.5GHz. Further confirmation of this initial target speed (2.5GHz) can be seen in this IBM Presentation (PDF), Page 23 dated from Feb 2003.

MacRumors has also heard whispers that the low end PowerMac for the next revision will come in at a single 2.0GHz G5, possibly verifying Appleinsider's information.

Apple has publicly stated that the PowerMac line would reach 3GHz "before the end of next summer"

Hopefully they fixed all those issues that lots of people seem to be having with them. After seeing the problems with the G5's, the new powerbooks etc.. I think i will be waiting for the second gen G5 laptops when they come out.

yea it is good to wait until after a second revision of a major update. all the qc problems with these new powerbooks and G5s just makes me soo happy that i bought my powerbook before the update. sure i would have gotten a more powerful machine with some nice extras in it but i would not want have to go through the troubles of having it replaced
