G5 Quad

pm_infoblock_chip.jpgSo Apple have yet again updated the G5 monster and stuck in their new Quad chip: "one silicon chip with two independent processor cores. Take two of those dual-core chips and you have the groundbreaking Power Mac G5 Quad. You can manipulate mountains of images or miles of footage, crunch enormous data sets, encode video or music and more — all at speeds you never imagined possible." This thing is immense, and combined with the ability to house a Max 16GB of RAM (at a cost of £8330!!), this machine would certainly perform under pressure and make you very poor at the same time. If I was going to buy my dream G5 it would now cost me over £17000! Doh!!
