Apples Unleashes the Big Doggies

Just before moving to what some are calling a “weaker” architecture, Apple unleases the big dogs with twin dual-core processors and brand super-fast video cards. Nice!

ZDnet: Adding to its steady stream of recently announced products, Apple on Wednesday upgraded its Power Mac desktop and PowerBook laptops.

The new Power Mac G5 Quad has two 2.5GHz dual-core PowerPC G5 processors. At a press event at Apple headquarters, the company said all Power Macs will now feature dual-core chips and improved graphics cards.

“With quad-core processing, a new PCI Express architecture and the fastest workstation card from Nvidia, the new Power Mac G5 Quad is the most powerful system we’ve ever made,” Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, said in a statement.
